  • The observed increase in the incidence could be

    due to the increased awareness amongst the

    health staff.

  • Similarly in recent years, there has been a general

    improvement in the laboratory support

  • Hence a community-based survey is proposed to

    identify missed cases and to ensure that whether

    or not there is a true increase in the incidence of

    tuberculosis in Oman
