Kuwait Time to Remove Total Lock Down
Deputy Prime Minister Anas Al-Saleh announced the end of the total ban. He said that in Kuwait it is time to remove total lock down. He said that the total ban will finish on May 30 with the end of the time set by the Council of Ministers. There will be no increase in this ban. However, there will be an implementation of a partial ban with life steadily returning back to normal.
Details of Partial Ban on Thursday
Al-Saleh announced in a press conference after an emergency meeting of the Council of Ministers today. The details of the partial ban programs will be declared on Thursday with details on life back to normalcy.
The Cabinet had reviewed in its extraordinary meeting assessing the past period of the total lock down. The cabinet reexamined a comprehensive report of the health and security actions taken.
Honoring the Employees
Undersecretary of the Civil Services Commission (CSC), Bader Al-Hamad, addressed in the same news conference. He announced about honoring the workers serving between February 24 and May 31 financially. He said the committee classified workers serving throughout the pandemic crisis into three categories.
The second category consists of people working in government departments. Those who were dealing with suspected cases, working in border crossings, quarantine facilities, and clinics.
The third category consists of employees working in supporting lines. Those who performed their duties during the partial or full curfew. The government will honor them in accordance with the degree of risk that is high risk and medium risk. The government would consider people who have lost their lives due to coronavirus, as martyrs. People who are infected with coronavirus would be given a special allowance until their recovery.
This is very good news for all the workers and businessmen who are in heavy losses due to full lockdown. They will start working on a partial ban because due to the total ban they were unable to earn even for their bread and butter. I appreciate this decision of the Cabinet and like always I will call the Govt of Kuwait as the Kindest and caring for its citizens as well as residents. Long Live Kuwait.
