Following the spread of COVID-19 in China and other countries and with the rise in the global infection rates, health sources reassured that the health situation in Kuwait is good, reports Al-Qzbas daily. They indicated that there is constant coordination with the World Health Organization to follow up on developments in the epidemiological situation. The sources explained the infection rate based on the swab tests carried out daily in the country did not exceed one percent during the recent period.
The rate of recovery from COVID-19 infection touched 100 percent, which means the level of community immunity is great and unprecedentedly strengthened compared to the period when COVID- 19 disease had emerged. The number of people who received the third and fourth booster doses exceeded 217,000 citizens and residents during the eight months from April 2022 to December 2022. Meanwhile, the sources affirmed that the airport movement is normal and there are no restrictions on travel, and that flights are operating according to the usual schedule. The sources explained that the health system in the country is ready to deal with developments that may occur at any time, especially after gaining practical field experience in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first infections were recorded locally in late February 2020, and there are wards designated for people with COVID-19 as well as isolation rooms in all public hospitals. The factor that supports the stability of the general indicators related to the COVID-19 virus in the country is the high rates of anti-virus vaccinations, and the remarkable demand for them during the current year. The total number of those who received the two doses during the period from April 19, 2022 until date is 51,735 citizens and residents, or 85.2 percent of the total population eligible for vaccination.
