KUWAIT: Director General of Kuwait Municipality Ahmad Al-Manfouhi took a decision Monday to decrease commercial activities allowed in the country as part of the measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Speaking to the press during inspections of vehicle repair shops in Shuwaikh and Sharq areas, Manfouhi indicated that activities allowed during the current circumstances were decreased from 17 to nine without specifying.
Government entities are battling the spread of the coronavirus; therefore, the Municipality is working to reinforce the Kuwaiti authorities decisions in this regard, he affirmed.
