Kuwait will enforce a 12-hour partial curfew from 6 pm to 6 am starting Sunday as part of a five-phase plan to gradually return to normal life, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) has announced.
The step is part of a slew of measures to ease coronavirus-related restrictions.
As per the new measures, mosques will reopen from Sunday in accordance with health guidelines and preventive measures.
“We have approved a plan to gradually return to normal life, as we cannot continue with the complete lockdown. Returning to normal life and living with the pandemic is a must,” Kuwait’s Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khalid Al Hamad Al Sabah said in a press conference following a meeting of the Kuwaiti government on Thursday evening.
Kuwait enforced a full lockdown from May 10 to 30 to help curb the spread of the new coronavirus.
