Oman Post has launched a new stamp to honour the service of the country's essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

The new 500 Baisa 'Oman faces Corona' stamps feature illustrations of health workers, cleaners and postal service employees, and will be available from June 22.

The postal service confirmed 40 per cent of the profits from the stamps will go to supporting national efforts to contain the virus and treat the unwell through a new endowment fund by the Ministry of Health.

“Every single day, our frontline workers remind us about the humility and the preciousness of life, whether it be our doctors, nurses, police officers, military and security forces, journalists, postal workers, or those working in essential service," said CEO of Oman Post, CEO of Oman Post Abdulmalik Al Balushi.

"We thank them for the immense sacrifice they continue to make for us, but also the sacrifices their families and loved ones are making."

Mr Al Balushi said the postal service wanted to express gratitude to workers but also create a lasting memory, "so that when all this is over, its not the destruction of the virus we remember, but the heroism of the people who fought it.”

Oman has had 24,524 cases of the virus, with 108 deaths. Last week it closed off the coastal city of Duqm and its free zone for three weeks after a surge in cases there.
