KUWAIT CITY, March 8: The Director-General of the Capital Security Directorate has ordered detention of an Asian man at the Dasma Police Station temporarily until he is referred to the deportation center and blacklisted, reports Al-Anba daily.
The daily added, the man was picked from the public road after passersby – expats and Kuwaitis – refused to approach until the securitymen and paramedics arrived – fearing he may be suffering from the coronavirus.
According to a security source, a Lebanese woman informed the Operations Room of the Interior when she and her husband saw a man staggering along a road in Bneid Al-Qar, near one of the well-known hotels and fell to the ground, and thought he may be suffering from coronavirus. The medical emergency team discovered the man lost his balance and fell because he was high on alcohol. This is the second case since the outbreak of the virus. Earlier another man who was high on alcohol was found sleeping among parked cars
