Talking to Oman TV, Al Hosni said that 83 percent of those infected with Covid-19 in the Sultanate are in the age group of 15-50.
Around 72,000 Covid-19 tests have been carried out in the country, with 111 patients in hospitals, including 33 in intensive care. Of these 30 patients have been put on ventilators.
