· There are companies that have been providing many services, including donating places of accommodation, providing meals for those in institutional isolation, as well as providing devices and equipment.
· Deaths in the Sultanate did not reach 1% of the registered cases.
· The Supreme Committee decided to hold a meeting on the first working day, after returning from Eid Al-Fitr's holiday, to take a decision regarding the return of employees to workplaces.
· Some citizens and residents do not comply with procedures and instructions.
· Several factors led to the spread of the epidemic among working residents, including the lack of proper accommodation, and the delay in approaching the health institutions, as well as that some expat communities are reluctant to comply with the instructions and explicitly violate the laws in force and the decisions of the Supreme Committee.
· There is no legal provision to compel those recovering from the coronavirus to donate blood and plasma.
· We always count on the initiative of citizens and residents to donate blood in general, as well as donating plasma by those recovering from the coronavirus in particular.
· It is not true that we have a shortage of medical equipment and devices in the
Sultanate. We have a sufficient number of equipment and devices in government
and private health institutions.
