The Kuwaiti government announced late Friday a full curfew in the country for three weeks to curb the rapid rise in coronavirus cases.

At a news conference, Tareq Al-Mezrem, government spokesman, said the curfew will be imposed from 4 p.m. Sunday and end on May 30.

But people are allowed to walk or exercise outdoors from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in their residential areas, without using their cars, he added.

Meanwhile, Minister of Health Bassel Al-Sabah noted a gradual opening after the full curfew.

Kuwait on Friday reported 641 new cases of COVID-19 and three more deaths, bringing the total infections in the country to 7,208 and the death toll to 47, the health ministry said in a statement.

On March 13, Kuwait suspended all commercial flights. The government also closed stores, malls and barbershops in an effort to curb the spread of the deadly virus.
