Muscat (AFP) May 28, 2014

Omani health authorities announced Wednesday three deaths this month from the swine flu virus, the official ONA news agency reported.

The health ministry said "82 new cases of H1N1 virus have been registered in May, three of them fatal," without elaborating.

In 2009, Oman recorded six deaths from swine flu, and authorities in the Gulf sultanate launched an innoculation campaign against the virus.
