Kuwait still in 1st coronavirus wave — Dr. Al-Sanad

– Health Ministry official Spokesman Dr. Abdullah Al-Sanad on Monday said that “we are” still in the first wave of the COVID-2019 pandemic and the second wave is not necessarily connected to winter season.

The rise in infection cases is expected in this time period due to daily activities and poor social distancing measures, Al-Sanad told KUNA on Monday.

He added that ICU units cases rose by five percent last week, calling on people to stick to health measures to avoid a second wave.

He stressed on the importance of maintaining social distancing, wash hands regularly, wear a mask everywhere, while advising people with terminal diseases, pregnant women and elderly to avoid leaving the house unless it’s necessary
