The Ministry of Health (MoH) has announced that 57 patients have recovered taking the number of recoveries to a total of 233.
On Sunday, 86 new cases were registered taking the total to 1,266 including six deaths. In a statement, MoH said those registered on Sunday, 15 cases are of Omani nationals while 71 are expatriates.
H. E. Dr Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Obaid al Sa’eedi, Minister of Health, had earlier said that the recovery rate in Oman is good. “Mortality rate in Oman is less compared to other countries. There are many COVID-19 patients who have recovered completely in Oman,” he said.
Dr Sa’eedi said that there is a challenge to control the spread of the infection among expatriates. “Some expatriates especially blue-collar workers live in groups in single houses. This makes it a challenge,” he said.
MoH calls upon all to adhere to the isolation procedures by staying in an isolated room attached to toilet, and serving the isolated person from outside the room as instructed.
