Is there a partial curfew in Kuwait?
KUWAIT CITY: Rumors were circulating in Kuwait that a partial curfew was once again being imposed to curb the corona virus epidemic, but a clear statement from the Ministry of Health has emerged.
According to the details, Kuwaiti Health Minister Dr. Basil Al-Sabah reacted strongly to the rumors about a partial curfew in the country and said in a statement that no such decision has been taken.
During a meeting with health officials, he once again dismissed rumors of a partial ban in the country.
Dr. Basel said in his explanatory statement that a meeting of the Ministry of Health was to be held on Sunday in which important decisions are expected, but when no meeting was held, how and by whom the decision regarding the partial curfew was taken is just a rumor.
It may be recalled that Kuwait had lifted the three-month partial curfew in the country on August 31. The partial lockdown was imposed on May 28. Under partial lockdown, there was a partial curfew from 6 pm to 6 am.
Kuwait had earlier imposed a 16-hour nationwide curfew from April 20, which was later extended, but only a few departments and agencies were allowed to operate from 4pm to 8pm.
