KUWAIT CITY, Feb 10: There are concerns among health authorities about celebrations and gathering during national holidays which could increase infection cases and put pressure on intensive care units in the country. There is a possibility of curfew to be introduced before holidays.
The proposal will be tabled on the cabinet ministers where the decision will be taken tomorrow (Thursday) after consulting health and economic authorities. The discussion will be a most important step to agree on a mechanism to prevent gathering and celebrations, report Al Qabas. The government has decided to be patient in retreating from closing some activities. Decrease in infection will lead to return of some activities with health precautions.
