Kuwait decided to start the second phase to return to normal life, a Kuwaiti official said on Thursday.

Tareq Al-Mezrem, the Kuwaiti government spokesman, said at a press conference that life in Kuwait will gradually return to normal and restrictions will be eased as the number of new infections recorded dropped slowly.

The second phase plan will begin on June 30 and will last for three weeks, he said.

Such phase is part of a five-phase plan to gradually return to normal life, he said, adding that the plan aims to reopen the economy completely by mid-September.

The government also decided to ease curfew hours to start from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., starting from June 30, he noted.

In the second phase, public and private sectors will resume work with less than 30 percent, in addition to the resumption of work in shopping malls, financial sector, construction sector, retail shops, parks, and pick-ups from restaurants and cafes, he said.

Meanwhile, the lockdown on three areas of Farwaniya, Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh and Mahboula that witnessed a surge in coronavirus cases will continue until further notice, he added.

Any movement forward will be subject to assessment by health authorities, he stressed.

On May 31, Kuwait ended the full curfew and imposed a three-week partial curfew for a gradual return to normal life in the country.

On June 18, Kuwait decided to ease the restrictions which were imposed to contain the spread of the COVID-19.

Kuwait and China have been supporting each other and cooperating closely in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kuwait donated medical supplies worth 3 million U.S. dollars to China at the early stage of the COVID-19 outbreak, while China has been facilitating the procurement of medical supplies by Kuwait.

On April 27, a team of Chinese medical experts visited Kuwait to assist the Gulf country’s anti-coronavirus fight, through sharing with Kuwaiti counterparts their experience and expertise in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.
