Kuwait to lift lockdown in some areas; change in curfew hours


The Kuwait government has decided to change curfew hours to start from 7:00 pm to 5:00 am.

The change will be implemented in the morning of Sunday, June 21, but would not allow the public sector’s workers to return to their offices next week.

The government decided to extend the first phase of a plan to restore normal life because of the high number of infections among the Kuwaiti citizens, Government spokesman Tareq Al-Mezrem told.

“The government will lift the lockdown on areas of Hawally, Nuqra, Maidan Hawally and some blocks in Khaitan as of next Sunday,” Al-Mezrem said.

Also, the government has allowed limited air travel for citizens with critical health conditions who should travel at their own expense.

Students who must travel to attend their tests will be allowed to do so, he added.

Kuwait has so far confirmed 38,074 cases and 308 fatalities.
