Oman lifts internal travel restriction before tropical storm

Oman will lift a two-week domestic ban on travel between provinces a day earlier than planned on Friday, before the expected arrival of a large tropical storm, state news agency ONA said.

It will be lifted at 2 p.m. (1000 GMT) on Friday, instead of on Saturday as had been planned, as it is expected to be hit by the storm in the Arabian Sea.

The ban on travel between governorates was imposed by the Gulf state on July 25 to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus during the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday.
