The partial curfew in Kuwait is likely to continue until the end of Ramadan, local media reported.
The head of the COVID-19 Supreme Advisory Committee, Dr. Khaled Al Jarallah, indicated that failure to adhere to health measures across Kuwait has led to an increase in COVID-19 cases throughout the country.
The partial curfew, which was implemented back in March 7, is from 6:00pm to 5:00am after the government pushed the curfew hour by one-hour last week.
According to local media the government will likely monitor the health situation weekly during Ramadan to assess whether a full lockdown is necessary, if the number of cases and COVID-19 related deaths are to increase.
The Cabinet of Ministers are set to discuss whether a curfew will be implemented during the holy month of Ramadan during their weekly meeting on Monday.
Health authorities will be submitting a report that illustrates the failure to implement health requirements, especially in banning gathering during curfew hours.
