Kuwait reported no Covid-19 deaths on Wednesday for the first time since February 6, 2021, with the spread of the virus curbed significantly in the country.

The country reported 33 new cases – the lowest daily case count registered since April 2, 2020.

Meanwhile, the number of patients in intensive care units has also fallen to nine patients – the lowest number since March 26, 2020, local daily Kuwait Times reported.

The Ministry of Health confirmed that the total number of infections increased to 411,605 on Wednesday, while deaths remained unchanged at 2,448.

It also announced 40 additional recoveries, taking total recoveries to 408,499.

The ministry stressed the need to continue following precautionary guidelines and noted that the coronavirus situation had improved in Kuwait due to the public’s compliance with restrictions.

Meanwhile Kuwait’s Public Authority for Sport has said that football fans will not be allowed access to stadiums since it is in the process of creating a “fleshed-out blueprint” in line with relevant health guidelines, the official Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

The move came following a recent local match between Qadsiya and Arabi in the Amir Cup’s semifinals, during which fans had failed to follow health guidelines related to physical distancing at the stadium, the authority said in a press statement.

The authority warned that “it would not be lenient in applying all health precautions and requirements” in order to prevent the spread of the virus in the country. The authority will hold a meeting with the football association on Sunday to create a clear-cut plan.
