Contain
The ministries and government institutions wore an empty look as the Council of Ministers in an attempt to contain the spread of the omicron mutant has reduced the number of employees to almost one-fourth of its capacity in addition to reducing working hours wherever feasible, reports Al-Rai daily. The outbreak of the ‘omicron’ mutant and its rapid spread in Kuwait has brought back the memories of yesterdays when the government took measures to control the outbreak of Covid- 19 pandemic at the beginning of 2020, especially the fourth stage, when government institutions worked to almost half the workforce.

With government agencies implementing the Civil Service Commission circular, which includes reducing the workforce by no more than 50 percent, applying flexible systems and working hours, the government is practically operating at a quarter of its capacity, in terms of reducing the number of employees on the one hand, and reducing the number of daily working hours that have been reduced to almost four hours daily. Prior to the enforcement of the Cabinet’s decision to reduce the rate of employees in state agencies to 50 percent and to activate electronic services, there was a significant increase in the frequency of appointments being booked to complete transactions especially after government agencies stressed not to receive clients without prior appointments, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The “Mata” platform updated the new appointment booking mechanism by linking with the “Sahel” application. It divided the booking system according to the type of transaction, thereby facilitating the procedure to be implemented. Some government service departments witnessed a great demand for appointments.
