This will help us to be more precautious in our daily life while keeping ourselves, our families and colleagues safe from COVID-19. We have seen an exemplary model of managing COVID-19 in Oman, an effort which has set a benchmark for many countries. This guidebook is a small tribute to the noble efforts of the Sultanate blessed by the vision of His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik, Ministry of Health, Royal Oman Police and every citizen and resident who played their part diligently.”

Dr Waleed stated, "This is probably the first of its kind guidebook on COVID-19 in GCC states from a private health care provider and we request everyone to access this. We have kept this bilingual for everyone’s use and we would be sharing this online and offline modes.

The guide book covers every aspect of precautions in a simple format and clears all prevalent myths about COVID-19 and protocols for keeping offices and homes safe.
