KUWAIT CITY, Oct 24: Within a few days, the field team responsible for enforcement of health instructions will begin enforcing immediate arrest of violators of the instructions, including those who do not wear masks or implement social distancing, reports Al-Seyassah daily.
According to a source, the ministerial resolution No. 83/2020 concerning commitment to the use of masks or covering mouth and nose by any other means stipulates implementation of clause 1 of article 17, amended by article 1 of law No. 4/2020.
