Muscat: The community response for the COVID-19 in Oman reflected in the commitment of individuals and institutions to the preventive measures taken to reduce the prevalence of COVID-19- has had profound impact on reducing the effects of the pandemic.

It has been clearly shown in the decrease in the number of cases and outbreaks recorded and the accompanying decrease in morbidity and hospitalization, particularly in admission to intensive care units (ICU) as well as mortality.

Since its launch in July 2020, the National sero-survey of COVID-19 virus infection has become one of the main pillars supporting the national strategy to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic through the survery’s objectives of assessing the prevalence of COVID-19 infection by age groups, monitoring of laboratory-diagnosed cases, assessing the level of infection in various governorates in Oman as well as the proportion of infections in those who have not shown symptoms, and assessing the effects of the closure of the governorates on the epidemic. said in the statement MOH.

Despite the importance of the information obtained from the samples of the first cycle, it should be noted that the continuation of the survey and the results that will be produced in the next stages is the most important, and here it should be emphasized on the need to continue the participation in the survey process by both the nationals and non-nationals.

It is worth mentioning that the final results of the survey will benefit the individuals and society and that the participation of individuals plays a crucial role in conducting and completing the survey as planned, and this can only be achieved by concerted efforts of everyone and the activation of individual and community responsibility in serving our country.
