COVID-19 in Oman: night-time curfew from 11 to 24th October

in Actifit2 months ago

Due to a sudden upsurge of COVID-19 cases and COVID-19 related deaths, the supreme committee, dealing with the pandemic in Oman, has decided to impose a curfew and movement banned all over the Sultanate from 11th October to 24th October. All kind of shops, public places like beaches or other public gathering venues are to remain closed from 8 pm to 5 am. It also prohibits any movements in the streets during the periods.

A similar curfew or movement banned was imposed previously around the Eid time (end of July and the first week of August) which was quite a bit of success in curving down the graphs in the Sultanate. The number of new cases significantly went down. But the effects of the previous curfew didn't last long. After a few weeks, daily new infections, ICU admission and death counts kept rising despite all the efforts. Hence the implementation of a new curfew or movement banned. Rest of time of the day, the committee allows already permitted activities following all health instructions.

From 11th October onwards, my clinic duty schedule will change as well. Two shifts clinic time will convert into a continuous work time; from 8:30 am to 7:30 pm. Until now (and except during the last curfew) clinic's working hours were 8:30 am to 1 pm and 4:30 pm to 10:30 pm. This change is temporary and will resume the old working hours at the end of the curfew.

The supreme committee and the law enforcement agencies, along with the health care workers, are trying hard to minimize the impact of corona pandemic. Here, the rules are strict. Mosques are still closed. Children under 12 years are not allowed in any supermarkets/hypermarkets. Face mask in public places is mandatory where violators face fines (of up to 100 OMR!) or other kinds of punishments. People are also more or less aware of the pandemic. And yet, daily new cases and death tolls are increasing! We are all just helpless.

It seems that until, by the grace of Almighty, the researchers find an effective vaccine, we cannot win over this tiny virus!!
