Kuwait Ministry of Health has announced that all non-emergency surgeries in government, private and specialized hospitals can resume as of Sunday, August 29.
In a press statement, the official spokesman of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Abdullah Al Sanad, said, “allowing the return of operations comes as the improvements in the epidemiological situation and the decreases in COVID-19 patients.”
In the past month, the health situation has severely improved as the number of deaths, cases and hospitalized patients has decreased.
Kuwaiti government put a hold on all non-emergency surgeries months ago as it was battling a surge in COVID-19 cases.
The improvement of the health situation coincides with the rise in vaccinated individuals.
