Hanaa AlHajri, Assistant Undersecretary for Social Development said the Kuwaiti Covid-19 fundraising campaign involved 41 Kuwaiti charities and saw donations made through a digital link.

She estimated that almost 200,000 people contributed to the cause, which was launched by the Ministry of Social Affairs, and is designed to help the government combat the spread of the deadly Covid-19 virus.

The money will be used to support health centres and quarantine facilities as well as helping low income workers.

However, the ministry has denied news that it has allocated a specific online link for people affected by the Covid-19 outbreak to register for aid.

There are currently 289 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Kuwait.
