Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on Friday called on media to shoulder responsibility to help defeat the coronavirus pandemic.

During a speech to the people of Kuwait on upcoming Eid al-Fitr festival, the emir expressed “deep regret for false reports and harmful rhetoric broadcast by the media and social media,” saying that it does not conform with the current hard circumstances in the country.

“I call on everybody to … be keen on playing a positive and responsible role in supporting joint efforts for annihilating this pandemic,” the emir said.

He called for effective steps parallel to the requirements of the current phase and its ramifications.

“This can only be attained with cooperation and collaboration of efforts, shouldering the responsibility, depending on ourselves and placing the higher national interest above any other consideration,” he added.

The emir expressed deep admiration and gratitude for all the people who have devoted themselves to containing the pandemic.

Kuwait on Friday reported 955 new cases of COVID-19 and nine more deaths, raising the tally of infections to 19,564 and the death toll to 138, the health ministry said in a statement.
