School was used as quarantine center for domestic workers
KUWAIT CITY, Dec 4: According to reliable sources, a decision has been taken by the concerned authority to evacuate Khaitan School, which was used as a quarantine center for the returning domestic workers, reports Al-Anba daily. They explained that the decision to use the school as a quarantine center was taken in order to deal with the lack of reservations in local hotels.
Accordingly, coordination was made with the Ministry of Health to use the school and fully equip it to receive some domestic workers during the period of institutional quarantine. The school was equipped with hotel equipment according to the specifi- cations in force for institutional quarantine by the Ministry of Health.
In an exclusive statement, a well-informed security source revealed that the use of the school, about which some controversies were raised recently, as a quarantine center for domestic workers has nothing to do with the Ministry of Interior. He stressed that the matter is concerned with three government agencies, and other subsidiary bodies, indicating that the school is already used as a quarantine center in coordination with these authorities. In response to a question about the denial of government agencies that the quarantine center is affiliated with them, the source said, “This matter does not concern us.
The school, which is located in Khaitan Block 4, was evacuated last Thursday after several rumors were raised concerning it, especially one that the institutional quarantine center of domestic workers is supposed to be a hotel, as per the decisions of the Cabinet. According to our information, the Ministry of Health sends delegates to examine the workers. The school actually belongs to government agencies and has been operating as a quarantine center for some time”. In response to a question about the Ministry of the Interior’s lack of action in this case, the source said the information received by them indicates that the school is being used by a government agency.
