MoH has announced that the recovery rate in Oman is good. Mortality rate in Oman is less compared to other countries. There are more COVID-19 patients who have recovered completely in Oman.

MoH calls upon all to adhere to the isolation procedures. The Ministry also advises all citizens and residents to keep on washing hands with water and soap, avoiding touching the face, nose, mouth, and eyes and following the healthy habits when coughing and sneezing.
