Kuwait’s Ministry of Defense has revealed that it has prepared three locations in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area, which will be used as a field hospital and quarantine facility.
According to Kuwait News Agency, this comes as the country strengthens its efforts to combat the effects of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Earlier, Kuwait’s State Audit Bureau (SAB) approved 12 contracts for various sites to be used as quarantine facilities for Kuwaitis returning from abroad.
The bureau has been contacting several local and international hotel brands to discuss using their facilities for quarantine. The contracts varied in daily expenses and services from $12,000 (KWD4,000) to $144 (KWD45), Al-Busairi explained.
Last week, Kuwait government spokesperson, Tareq Al-Mezrem said that the government has assigned state departments to complete arrangements to consider imposing a full curfew nationwide in order to step up the efforts that have been adopted to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Previously, the Kuwait Ministry of Defense completed and handed over Hall 5 in the International Fairs Ground to the Ministry of Health to be used as a quarantine facility. The hall comprises 259 rooms.
