1, The number of people in home quarantine is more than 22,000 cases.

3, We detected the emergence of diabetes in patients without a history of diabetes, after infection with a virus

4, The Sultanate has not rushed to open commercial activities, and it has progressed to that.

5, This virus is volatile, and therefore we observed that 30% of patients who were hospitalized in intensive care had kidney failure, which causes an additional burden on health services.

6, There was an intention to participate in clinical trials of the vaccine, but most of the companies put impossible conditions.

7, The recovered donation of plasma covers the need, but does not prevent the continuation of the donation.

8 , On the beaches, you can find hundreds of people clustered together, unfortunately, not observing safety measures.

9 , Gradual opening of commercial activities must be done for health reasons

10, The number of plasma donors during the month of August was 221, with a total of 506 plasma units. While the total number of donors reached 911 donors and the total number of units reached 2011 plasma units.

11, The resilience of the health sector, with the resilience of our health care, we will have overcome the virus when zero cases are recorded, and it will be a success for the Sultanate and not for the Ministry of Health.

12, 5 cases of diabetes were monitored after they were infected with the Coronavirus and which they has no diabetes cases before
