With a surge of COVID-19 cases in Kuwait, the government has announced that all travellers arriving in the country from February 21 onwards will need to quarantine in a hotel for the first seven days.
The hotels will have designated floors or sections of the hotel for quarantining guests on arrival, with meals served in disposable containers to prevent any transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
