Muscat: The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health for Health Affairs, Dr. Mohammed al Hosani, has confirmed the registration of 7 cases of dengue fever in the Wilayat of Bawshar in the Governorate of Muscat.


He said, "This is not the first time that dengue fever cases have been recorded in the Sultanate of Oman, as cases were recorded in 2019 and 2020 in the governorates of Muscat and Dhofar.


"The disease is not transmitted from one person to another directly, it is transmitted to humans through the bite of a mosquito known as Aedes aegypti.


Muscat Municipality has been monitoring the mosquito breeding places, places with stagnant water around houses.


The mosquito control methods implemented by the work teams include preventing leaks from sewage openings.
