Kuwait health minister: COVID case, death rate at “unprecedented decline,” ICU occupancy at “lowest level”
Kuwait’s Health Minister Sheikh Dr. Basel Al-Sabah said on Monday COVID-19 infection and death rates are at an “unprecedented decline,” with intensive care unit occupancy levels at their “lowest” amid an increase in two-dose vaccination rates amongst nationals and residents.
This came as the minister briefed a cabinet session on the “ongoing improvements” regarding the COVID-19 pandemic situation nationwide, according to a cabinet statement.
In turn, ministers expressed “great satisfaction and reassurance” at the revelation, labeling the public vaccination campaign a “success”, thanks to its contribution to raising societal immunity levels.
They went on to reiterate the need for both nationals and residents, who have not yet been inoculated, to receive one of the four approved vaccines to preserve public safety and ensure the defeat and full control over this pandemic.
