Kuwait: Ministry of Health denies rumors about ‘no coronavirus case’

Kuwait’s Health Ministry on Thursday denied claims of suspected discovery of novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the world on social media sites such as Facebook.

Until now, no case of contamination with 2019-nCoV has also been identified in the State of Kuwait, the department said in a press release.

The statement encouraged both Kuwaiti citizens living abroad to focus on independent sources including the Ministry of Health for population health news.

This prompted the enactment of unencrypted news or rumors, advising that any instances of interference with the trust in the activities of the Ministry would be taken to litigation.
