Official statement from Oman:

The Royal Opera House Muscat has canceled all events and concerts for the remainder of the months of March and April of the current season due to procedures related to the coronavirus and notes the suspension of all tours in the “Opera” and “Musical Arts” homes until further notice.

    there’s opera in Oman? Didn’t know Bedouins go for that sort of thing.

  • Mustafa Kandan says:

    The next step governments should do is to take control over the supply of essential goods in countries where hysteria have led to severe shortages. Who would have thought that people in a country like Australia would emulate third world countries and allow chaos and rule of the jungle to dominate. This self made crisis in product shortages & resulting rise in prices should serve as a lesson that only orderly societies thrive.
