The public is reminded to take preventative measures for respiratory infections as the Sultanate is seeing a slight increase in influenza-like illness (ILI) in the past two weeks.
This was said by Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar during a press conference.
He said preventative measures include isolating oneself during the period of symptoms; wearing a face mask; and frequent handwashing with soap or disinfectant.
The minister said the measures are similar to those for COVID-19.
“We hope the public cooperates and continues to upload antigen rapid test (ART) results – whether positive or negative – to the BruHealth app,” said the minister.
