- The Indian embassy also announced on Twitter that Oman has approved Kovacs
- Earlier, only AstraZeneca Kovshield from India was included in the Oman approved vaccines.
From now on, those who take two doses of covaxin and complete 14 days will no longer need quarantine when they arrive in Oman, officials said. At the same time, passengers must follow other Kovid precautions, including RT-PCR. The Indian embassy also announced on Twitter that Oman has approved Kovacs.
The embassy said in a statement that the decision was a “consolation” for Indians stranded in Oman due to the adoption of Kovacsin. Earlier, only AstraZeneca Kovshield from India was included in the Oman approved vaccines. Many expatriates who received covaxin were distressed by this. The new decision will bring relief to many Indian expats, including Malayalees.
This is the first time a foreign country has officially recognized an Indian-made Kovacs. The decision to approve Bharat Biotech’s Kovacs was again extended by the World Health Organization yesterday. Approval has been postponed to clarify the immunity of the vaccine. The Indians are hoping for a decision on the issue at a meeting on November 3.
