I know personally many Nurses directly go to Lulu after their duty in their Uniform. We respect the health staff but this shouldn''t allow. This is one of the main reason for spreading the virus. They should make different grocery shops for health staff. Now they have the freedom to go wherever they want. Sorry, I am writing with full respect to the health staff

Kuwait govt. should appoint volenteers (any Nationality who wants to assist Kuwait Govt.) to keep a watch on all grocery shops, and Expatriate areas. There are so many don''t follow govt. rules. Don''t wear mask while going for walk or visiting small grocery shops.. There are thousands of grocery shops in Kuwait. If people and shop keepers do not follow the rules then again there will be more cases.

The good results of complete lockdown are visible now, as we are noticing reducing trend of cases in the last 5 days. A wise decision was taken by Kuwait to break the virus chain.

Lets hope and pray that Kuwait and the rest of the world would come out of this pandemic at the earliest.
