Oman clear of monkey pox: MoH

Muscat: The Sultanate of Oman has affirmed that it has not detected any suspected or confirmed cases of monkey pox. A statement issued by the Ministry of Health on Tuesday said that Oman is regularly monitoring the epidemiological situation, locally and abroad.


The Ministry urged citizens and residents to take necessary precautionary measures to avoid the risks of infection. It cautioned against direct contact with any person who shows morbid respiratory symptoms, particularly persons arriving from countries that reported positive cases.


The ministry also underlined the need to wear face masks and maintain hand hygiene, once a suspected case is detected in the social surroundings.


Members of the public are advised to get information and updates from official sources and avoid following rumours or wrong information.
