Cooperative societies allowed to boost coronavirus response minister Al Aqail

Cooperative societies across Kuwait should use any means necessary, including budget allocations, to help boost consumers’ immunity against the novel coronavirus, said a minister on Wednesday.

The Kuwaiti government has established a close rapport with cooperative societies nationwide in efforts to ensure that consumers get easy access to items such as facemasks and hand sanitizers to help keep the disease at bay, Minister of Social Affairs Mariam Al Aqail told reporters.

These cooperative societies carry an obligation to protect consumers even in the most difficult of circumstances, the minister underlined. Kuwait on Wednesday reported six new cases of coronavirus, upping the tally of infections in the country to 18.
