Expats and non-vaccinated people increasing among ICU cases in Kuwait
Expatriates and people who haven’t been vaccinated against COVID-19 have the highest numbers among hospitalized and ICU patients in Kuwait, head of the higher COVID-19 committee Dr Khaled Al-Jarallah said.
The number of positive results from field swab tests have dropped except in investment residential areas and among expats, he added.
