Oman has stopped accepting resignations from medical workers until further notice, as it tries to curb coronavirus cases, according to the media in the UAE.
A memo was sent to medical institutions in the sultanate advising them of this.
The authorities said the coronavirus pandemic had made the restriction necessary.
“In view of the current conditions of the pandemic, and what the indicators show of the accelerating rise in the number of cases infected with Covid-19 … it is decided to stop receiving resignation requests submitted by the occupants of medical and auxiliary medical posts from Omanis until further notice,” the circular said.
It did not give further details nor indicate how many medical workers have attempted to tender their resignations and been rejected, government hospital administration officers told The National.
