KUWAIT CITY, Feb 14: In reaction to what was published by the Al-Qabas newspaper and the video clips posted in the social media, the government moved to control the fish market, after seeing overcrowding, chaos and disrespect for physical distancing, reports Al-Qabas daily. Teams from the ministries of Commerce, Interior and the Public Authority for Food and Nutrition (PAFN) began their work and prevented individuals from entering the auction.
The auction was limited to companies, and this has sent a feeling of discontent among the citizens demanding individuals be allowed to take part in the auction and forced to respect health requirements.
A security force came to the fish market to control crowds and ensure compliance with the requirements. PAFN began examining the fish and ensuring its suitability before the start of the auction.
