A new animated video released by the Ministry of Health (MOH) shows viewers how just a few simple steps can help save lives and reduce the spread of infectious disease.



In the wake of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus’s continued spread worldwide, and with four cases to date confirmed in Oman, the MOH is pursuing an increased awareness campaign to educate the public on best hygiene practices to avoid the spread of germs.

In a Tweet shared today, a short video with animate graphics shows just how far disease-carrying droplets can spread from uncovered coughs and sneezes. It also highlights the importance of proper hand-washing — “the least expensive and most effective practice”, stating that “your protection begins with the cleanliness of your hands.”
