Oman reports first case of new COVID-19 strain

  • Coronavirus

Oman on Tuesday registered the first case of the new coronavirus variant for an expatriate resident who arrived from the UK, the Health Ministry said.

The expat 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 December 29, after a one-week shutdown over the new variant.



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