Increase in COVID-19 infections seen due to ‘doubling of checks’

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 14: The Director of Public Relations Department at the Ministry of Health, Dr. Ghada Ibrahim, said the noticeable increase in the number of daily infections with ‘Covid-19’ is due to the doubling of daily checks to detect the virus, which range between 10 and 12,000 daily.

Dr Al-Ibrahim explained the daily infection rate is still considered normal and very stable, since the rate of infection recorded yesterday was just 4.77 percent compared to the number of daily swabs, which shows the stability of the epidemiological situation in the country.
