Alarming rise in Covid-19 cases in Oman as 755 people died in June

Muscat: Alarming rise in Covid-19 cases in Oman as 755 people died in June.

In a statement said Oman news agency: The Sultanate is currently recording a alarming g rise in the number of Covid-19 infections, which has led to an increase in the number of inpatients in health institutions and inpatients in intensive care units, and a rise in deaths.

Statistical analyst Ibrahim bin Ahmed Al Maimani indicated that when analyzing the statistics for the current month of June, we note that this month was the highest in terms of new infections since the beginning of the pandemic in the Sultanate, where 51,321 new cases were recorded compared to the highest total number of new cases previously recorded in July of last year. As it reached 39,089 new cases, in contrast, 34,901 cases of recovery were recorded during this month, while the recovery rate decreased from 92 percent to 87.5 percent.

In a statement to the Oman News Agency, he stated that when analyzing the death index in June, we note that the number of deaths is still high, as the total deaths to date reached 755 deaths, and an average of 25 deaths per day, which is the highest rate since the beginning of the pandemic, as 344 deaths were previously recorded in the month of April. This year, an average of 11.5 deaths per day.

With regard to hospitalized cases, Al-Maimani stated that the number of inpatients in hospitals doubled by 98 percent, compared to 808 cases at the end of last May, bringing the cases until the end of this month to 1597 cases, an increase of 789 cases.

He said that the intensive care cases also doubled, as their number reached at the beginning of the end of last May 247 cases, to reach at the end of this month 519 cases, an increase of 272 cases, at a rate of 110 percent.

He pointed out that an increase in the number of the deceased was observed during the last 24 hours, with a total of 3,597 cases recorded, as record numbers were recorded on the current June 27 with 214 cases, followed by June 22 with 209 cases, and then on June 23 with 203 cases.

He said that this indicator is worrying, as it directly affects the sleeping cases in hospitals and from there to intensive care, given that the increase in these numbers constitutes a great burden on the Ministry of Health and the hospital’s absorptive capacity.

His Excellency Dr. Ahmed bin Muhammad Al-Saidi, Minister of Health, member of the Supreme Committee in charge of examining the mechanism of dealing with developments resulting from the spread of the Corona virus Covid 19, confirmed in a previous statement that the health sector in the Sultanate has become “exhausted” and the current wave of the epidemic is “the worst and most continuous.”

The Ministry of Health continues a campaign to vaccinate the age group of 45 years and over and the pregnant group, starting from the fourth month, with vaccines against the Corona virus in all governorates of the Sultanate within the national campaign for immunization against Covid 19.

The Ministry of Health will start immunizing a new target group against the Corona virus starting from Sunday, to include the age group from 18 years and above.
