Army troops deployed around Farwaniya

Kuwait Army troops were deployed on Sunday around the residential district of Al-Farwaniya in line with a Cabinet resolution in this respect.

The Army said in a statement the "Duty Force Al-Sanad" was stationed around the district, implementing a Government decision to impose full isolation on a number of residential districts in the country.

The squad had been established to back up other state authorities amid current circumstances prevailing in the country due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Cabinet, in its latest session, decided to isolate a number of densely-populated districts including Hawally, in one of latest measures in the face of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Al-Farwaniya is considered the top densely populated district in Kuwait, with an estimated population of 24,000 people.

Kuwait has taken a series of measures to cope with the outbreak. A total lockdown has been eased into a partial one, with residents allowed to venture out from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The easing process is in five phases, each lasting three weeks, until reaching full restoration of regular life, tentatively due in middle of September.

All food supplies and other necessities are secured for the isolated areas. Vehicles of companies distributing products and goods to groceries and other stores are allowed to pass through security checkpoints around the confined districts.
