KUWAIT CITY: Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Al-Ali (Retd) who heads the committee that has been formed to ensure that everyone adheres to health requirements in order to preserve the safety of everyone and limit the spread of the coronavirus, said the committee will take strict measures when it comes to implementing the health requirements during the holy month of Ramadan. He said this in view of the number of infections showing a steep rise in addition to the number of the dead increasing recent days especially due to the corona pandemic and the lack of commitment and adherence to implementing health requirements.

He said there this is not the time to issue warnings but rather direct application of the law. In other news, after the meeting, which was attended by senior officials from the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR), Al-Ali told Al-Seyassah daily that the committee will coordinate with the concerned authorities to cut off the power supply to livestock pens, farms or chalets if any gatherings or celebrations happen there and the same applies to restaurants or branches of well-known cafés.

Stressed

He stressed the committee will not stop its work rather will take strict measures against all facilities which violate health requirements, because this is the only way to control the number of infections and reduce the number of deaths.

The violations and disrespect for the decisions issued by the government and particularly the Ministry of Health will not be tolerated at all. He disclosed, since its formation the committee has issued 11,276 violations against store owners for violating health requirements.

This is in addition to administratively closing 826 shops and issuing warnings to 34,000 stores. He has called on everyone, particularly shop owners and markets to abide by the health requirements prescribed by the concerned authorities to avoid legal accountability, again emphasizing that the campaigns will not stop, but will increase more in the coming days in all areas in the country.
