Meanwhile, Kuwait Health authorities are studying a request to change the partial curfew period for the second stage from 9 pm to 6 am, to instead start from 6pm and end at 4 am. 

The health authorities are planning to present a comprehensive evaluation in the first stage, including the rate of infections in their areas, especially those under lockdown before a decision will be taken for lifting the lockdown or implementing the measure in other areas.
