By Wam

An official source at the Sultanate of Oman’s Ministry of Health said that two people died from severe pneumonia due to the H1N1 virus.

The ministry affirmed that it closely monitors the disease through the epidemic monitoring system, Oman News Agency (ONA) reported.

The ministry calls on the citizens to follow proper practices during sneezing and coughing, as well as, ensuring personal hygiene especially hands. They should also ensure washing hands before and after visiting patients.

H1N1 is one of the seasonal flu viruses. Many cases have been recorded in the Sultanate and different parts of the world. Most of these cases are very simple and do not need therapeutic intervention. They do not also constitute an epidemic at the current period.
