Oman’s Government Communications Centre (GCC) has issued a statement in clarification of allegations circulating about the closure of a shopping centre in Al Hail due to coronavirus.



In the statement, which was issued online today [Thursday, May 14], the GCC said that rumours of the centre being closed after three cases of coronavirus were discovered there are “totally false.”

The GCC further clarified that the decision to close the retail centre was because it was found to be in violation of COVID-19 health and safety measures.

The GCC once again addressed the public not to adhere to rumours and to take information from reliable sources.
