Kuwait returns to pre-pandemic working hours

On Thursday the Kuwaiti cabinet approved the return of usual working hours across all government bodies starting Aug. 15, as coronavirus infections in the country show steadily improvement.

In the cabinet meeting, Dr. Bassel Humoud Al-Sabah, Kuwaiti minister of health, said over 100,000 appointments are made daily for vaccination.

He noted a continued decline in coronavirus-related deaths, infections and hospitalizations, and highlighted ministry efforts to speed up vaccination to reach herd immunity.
