Sultan Qaboos Hospital in Salalah has been completed by 10% so far. The laying of the foundation stone had been postponed after the demise of late Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Bin Taimour, and due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

A campaign was launched in the Governorate of Dhofar to eliminate the mosquito that transmits dengue fever. This disease posed more burden on health institutions in the governorate.

We are facing some difficulty in obtaining the doses we need of influenza vaccine, however, the pursuit to obtain them is still ongoing. The priority will be for those who are more vulnerable such as the medical staff, the elderly and those with chronic diseases.

Tests are increasing according to the need, with the exception of those who have very mild symptoms, which is a global procedure. We have noticed the misuse of these tests.

We recently a deal with a global company to conduct tests in the Sultanate, as you will notice an increase in the number of tests.
