Oman night ban returns as ICU cases

On Wednesday Oman has reported a record number of coronavirus patients in the intensive care unit as the Sultanate renewed the night curfew.

There are more than 770 hospitalized COVID-19 patients, with 264 in ICU, for the first time since the pandemic started, the report said.

Authorities have renewed the ban on all commercial activities and movement of people and vehicles between 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. local time throughout the holy month of Ramadan.

All types of gatherings, including iftars in mosques, tents, or public places typical during Ramadan are affected by the prohibition against the mass assembly.
