Kuwait: 116 stranded medical staff return from India
116 nurses have arrived in Kuwait after being stranded in India since the beginning of the pandemic.
A source within the Ministry of Health said, that the group of nurses are part of the 400 nurses that were granted permission to enter Kuwait by the ministry. While they were part of the first batch, more are to follow.
All of the arriving nurses, which landed on Friday, were required to conduct a swab test at the airport before being transferred to their residence for mandatory 14-day quarantine.
Various Ministries have non-Kuwaiti employees that are stuck abroad, unable to return due to the travel ban imposed on 34 countries, including India, Egypt, Philippines and Bangladesh.
