No fatalities from measles cases have been recorded in Oman, despite a recent global spike in cases.
A massive Ministry of Health awareness campaign meant the potentially life-threatening condition did not claim a single life here.
The vaccination campaign started early, after ministry chiefs spotted the alarming global trend.
Moreover, the ministry also managed to significantly reduce the number of measles cases in Oman since its last major outbreak recorded in 2016-17.
