Oman has registered its first case of a highly contagious coronavirus variant that emerged in Britain, in a resident who arrived from the UK, the health ministry said on Tuesday

The resident developed respiratory symptoms in quarantine, despite testing negative before travelling, the ministry said in a statement carried on Oman’s state news agency.

Oman reopened its land, air and sea borders on Dec. 29, after a one-week shutdown over the new variant.

A negative COVID-19 polymerase test is required for people arriving from abroad at any of Oman’s airports.
