COVID-19: Ban on expat entry to Kuwait unlikely to be lifted in Ramadan

Cairo: A ban on entry of foreigners to Kuwait is unlikely to be lifted in the holy month of Ramadan as the country is struggling to bring COVID-19 infections under control, Kuwaiti media said.

###

A spike in daily infection rates in the country prompted Kuwaiti authorities last February to impose a ban on non-Kuwaitis’ entry that has recently been extended.

###

Current infection rates in Kuwait are “still alarming” despite their semi-stable daily trend, health officials said. They ruled out the possibility that measures in place against COVID-19 will be “modified or eased” during Ramadan or expatriates are allowed to enter the country until mid-May when the holy month ends.

Virus cases

###

Kuwait has recorded a total of 10,804 virus cases and 74 fatalities in the first nine days of April, making it hard for health authorities to recommend easing health restrictions in place.

###

Kuwait so far has registered a tally of 245,704 coronavirus cases and 1,403 deaths.

###

Last week, the Kuwaiti government extended a nighttime curfew until April 22, which was originally due to end last Thursday.
