Motorists have been stuck on the road for hours due to sudden road restrictions on movement in some parts of the capital.

The wilayat of Muttrah was placed under complete health isolation this morning to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Other areas facing closure include Hamriyah, Wadi Kabir, Darsait and its neighbouring regions, and Ruwi.

Traffic to and fro these areas have been closed down.

As reported by Oman TV, the closure of these areas in the Governorate of Muscat is to protect the people from the transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

This comes after the Sultan’s Armed Forces established control measures and checkpoints on people travelling between Governorates of Oman. 

Citizens and residents of the Sultanate have all been asked to stay at home and cooperate with the authorities until the completion of procedures.
