The newly diagnosed cases include 324 Omanis and 414 foreign residents, the Health Ministry said without giving a breakdown of foreign patients’ nationalities.

The ministry also reported eight new deaths from COVID-19, taking the country’s total such fatalities to 67.

The country’s total recoveries from the disease have reached 2,845, it added.

While easing some virus-related curbs, Omani authorities have repeatedly urged businesses and individuals to abide by health precautions and warned against violations.

A number of restaurants were fined in the Governorate of Al Buraimi for violating the decisions and operations conditions set by the Supreme Committee Tackling COVID-19, the Royal Oman Police (ROP) said.

Police in the Governorate of Musandam arrested an expatriate for selling clothes inside a house, along with several citizens for gathering and purchasing clothes in violation of a ban on such gatherings, the ROP added.
