Action taken on the deceased[edit source | edit]

April 16: The Director of Funeral Affairs Department of Kuwait Municipality, revealed that the administration had buried 3 bodies who had died due to the Coronavirus, without washing them. Ministry of Health has issued direct orders that in the event of death due to the virus, the deceased is placed in a completely closed sterile bag which does not open. The burial procedures are as per usual proceeding and the selection of graves is according to the established numerical sequence, and therefore there are no places designated for those who died with the virus. In addition, only 3 people with the deceased were allowed to enter and attend the burial which takes place in the cemetery.[57] Kuwaiti MP Khalīl aṣ-Ṣaliḥ suggested that medical workers who die fighting the pandemic be treated as martyrs, under the martyrs' office, which controls the affairs of families of people who died fighting off the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait.[58][59]

Response[edit source | edit]

All commercial flights were suspended on 13 March, with an exception for cargo flights. A public holiday was declared from 12 to 26 March, with work to resume on 29 March. Some shops were closed, and restrictions were placed on restaurants.[60] Authorities asked people to stay home for Friday prayers, saying "The doors of the mosques will stay closed" and citing a fatwa allowing people not to attend prayers in mosques.[61] Classes were suspended from 1 to 12 March, which was extended to 29 March,[60] and later to 4 August.[62]

Visas were partially suspended, and quarantines required for all arrivals from certain high-risk countries. Arrivals at Kuwait International Airport from other countries were required to self-quarantine for 14 days.[60] The borders with Iraq and Saudi Arabia were closed.[63]

Food exports were banned, and Minister of Commerce & Industry Khalid Al Roudan reassured people that the country had enough food and shipping was continuing.[63]

On 15 March, Interior Minister Anas Khalid Al-Saleh told people to follow the measures imposed by the government and stop going out unnecessarily. He warned that curfews or deportations could be used if people failed to comply.[15]

Impacts[edit source | edit]

Academic Studies[edit source | edit]

The suspension of the schools was needed to avoid the spread of the coronavirus in children, teenagers and younger people (Kindergarten up to university level). The high school graduates (Grade 12 seniors) were the most affected by the suspension since graduation is usually in May–June yearly. However, the academic year will be resumed in August 2020, which means their graduation will be delayed. Furthermore, getting sponsored scholarships to study in universities, will also be delayed due to the same reasons.[citation needed]

Economics[edit source | edit]

The strategic planning and surplus for food and supplies are for six months. All supermarkets and grocery stores have all usual products as before the border closure or the imposed partial curfew.[citation needed]

However, small businesses are the most affected since they are losing a lot of money, and yet, have to pay rent or salaries to their workers. The government have promised packages and solutions to ensure these businesses are compensated for these unfortunate circumstances with the partial lockdown.[citation needed]

People[edit source | edit]

People are confined to their homes. , the government has correctly imposed a complete lockdown on non-Kuwaiti labor's residing in a jaleb-al-shwiek area. All the Kuwaitis and non-Kuwaitis are appreciative of the efforts that were put in place to ensure the control of the coronavirus. However, there is a sense of rush in buying supplies in non-curfew hours (6 a.m to 5 p.m), even though the Kuwaiti government have reiterated that goods and supplies are for six months.[citation needed]

The partial lockdown, staying at home and social distancing has caused boredom for the majority, as cinemas, malls, department stores, and entertainment places are shut and closed. Normal things like exercising in the gym, or eating outside people homes, suddenly unacceptable, shut and closed due to the coronavirus.[citation needed]

Medical personnel[edit source | edit]

At least 105 medical personnel, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other professions, were infected with the virus as of 27 April 2020[64]
