With 1,104 new on Sunday, Oman recorded its highest ever rise in daily coronavirus cases.
The Ministry of Health said the new cases include 371 Omanis and 643 foreigners.
The ministry said the total confirmed cases of coronavirus now stand at 11,437. A total of 44 patients have died so far.
Meanwhile, a senior doctor specializing in child healthcare at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) has said that five percent of COVID-19 cases reported in Oman are children.
However, although a number of children have tested positive for COVID-19 in Oman, there have been no deaths recorded among them so far.
“The estimate we have so far is of approximately 5% of the infected cases in Oman. Thankfully, the vast majority of them have been mild so far and there have been very few hospitalizations, and no deaths among children in Oman have been recorded,” said Dr. Zaid Al Hinai, a consultant on pediatric infectious diseases at the SQU.
