In a statement issued online on Tuesday, May 5, the GCC clarified that the rumours being shared in the community about a female employee at a bank branch in Salalah’s Dahariz area having contracted the COVID-19 coronavirus are false.

The GCC once again reminded the public in its statement not to adhere to rumours or misinformation, and to take facts and news only from credible, verified sources.
