Coronavirus cases have increased due to the failure to abide by social distancing, health Minister Sheikh Bassel Al-Sabah said in an online briefing.

However, the health situation is under control and “the number of infections is expected to decline after the implementation of the full curfew in the country,” the minister added.

The full curfew started on March 11, but people were allowed to leave their homes for two hours each day between 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The Kuwait Municipality has also announced that it will allow grocery stores to deliver items to nearby residents during the curfew. It said that only stores located in investment areas can take advantage of this decision and deliver commodities to customers during the morning shift from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the night shift from 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
