COVID-19: 3 Mosques Shut Again In Kuwait
The administration of the mosques in the governorates of Ahmadi, Mubarak Al-Kabeer and Al-Jahra closed three mosques after discovering two infection cases from coronavirus, two cases related to one of the imam in the Ahmadi suburb of Sabah Al-Ahmad and a muezzin in a mosque in the suburb of Sabah Al-Salem and third the mosque in Jahra due to lack of commitment to adhere to precautionary measures.
Authorities closed the two mosques and ordered that they be sterilized and summon those in the mosque to conduct their medical checks.
The management of mosques in the two governorates stressed that everyone who goes to the mosques should strictly adhere to the ministry’s health precautionary instructions and that who feels that they are sick should not come to the mosques to pray.
Meanwhile, His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Sabah Khaled Al-Hamad Al-Sabah on Tuesday stressed on necessity of ongoing cooperation between the Government and the National Assembly for maintaining health guidelines and placing public health above all considerations.
His Highness the prime minister, in his address to the legislators, urged them to tackle and discuss matters quickly and set an example “to those whom we have imposed on a curfew and remained in their houses for 20 days.” “The State of Kuwait has not reached the safe zone in facing the coronavirus yet,” he declared, confirming health authorities’ statistics that the infection cases reached some 36,958 and deaths nearly 303.
