Muscat: The number of Influenza cases has dropped by almost a quarter compared to 2016, but the Ministry of Health has warned residents to

be vigilant as flu season approaches.

According to the latest report by the MoH, deaths as a result of influenza have reduced over the past three years, with 2017 season seeing eight cases of deaths so far compared to 2015 which recorded 25 deaths.

As a semi-tropical country, seasonal influenza viruses continue to appear throughout the year in the sultanate. The virus starts in early September and can continue until mid-May.

“In 2017, there were 952 cases until the tenth of October of influenza while 2016 saw 1492 cases of influenza,” the ministry said in a statement.

“The Sultanate has recorded 25 cases of deaths in 2015, six cases of deaths in 2016, and eight deaths in 2017, all linked to the flu and most of those cases were among the groups most at risk of high risk of complications of influenza. Despite the high number of cases, it is still within the normal range compared to previous years,” added the ministry.
