The government of Kuwait was compelled to impose a partial curfew due to non-compliance with Ministry of health’s instructions to stay indoors with the aim of curbing the spread of coronavirus, a senior official said.

Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Anas Al-Saleh told a news conference after a cabinet meeting an 11-hour curfew would start as of tomorrow Sunday at 5:00 p.m. until 4:00 a.m. the following day.

“Regrettably non-compliance with the Ministry of Health’s instructions to stay indoors forced the government to impose the curfew,” said Al-Saleh, also Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs.

He said the Civil Defense Committee would be issuing IDs for persons working in vital sectors so they could move during the curfew. Al-Saleh, meanwhile, said a holiday of government departments and private companies that were scheduled to end on March 26, would be extended for two weeks.
