Social media abuzz with gratitude for retired Health Minister – Muscat Daily

Muscat – Oman has made remarkable progress in healthcare in the last decade, including reduction in mortality, especially child mortality, and prevention and control of communicable diseases. The sultanate boasts of state-of-the-art healthcare infrastructure and qualified specialists leading from the front.
Dr Ahmed bin Mohammed al Sa’eedi, the face of Oman’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, has been instrumental in the progress made over the years in the health sector.
With the announcement of his retirement following appointment of Dr Hilal bin Ali al Sabti as the new Minister of Health by His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik on Thursday, social media was abuzz with appreciation and acknowledgement of Dr Sa’eedi’s contribution to the health sector.
Ibn Esi tweeted, “Dr Sa’eedi is a name we will never forget. You will be fondly remembered for the way COVID-19 was dealt with. Thank you very much for all the effort you made. For me, you are a hero. Big salute to you, Sir.”
Maithaa al Saidi also thanked Dr Sa’eedi on Twitter. She said, “It’s time for this knight to step down. You fulfilled the trust.”
For Ahmed al Salmi, Dr Sa’eedi was a reassuring presence at the helm of affairs. “He gave what he had. He was a source of reassurance when we were anxious during the early days of the pandemic. Thank you Dr Sa’eedi.”
Others described Dr Sa’eedi’s task as very difficult but accomplished successfully. “We will always remember your composure, your great communication skills and your understanding of human psychology,” Dr Amal Ambusaidi said.
Addressing one of many press conferences last year, Dr Sa’eedi said, “If we want the new year to be better, we must all strive to preserve our health sector by adopting precautionary measures.”
All paid heed to his advice, which resulted in limiting infection transmission and consequently great relief with the pandemic significantly controlled this year.
