As far as the Delta Strain coming into Kuwait, the high possibility would be the Housemaids, House drivers that are returning and not forgetting the Nurses who travel in and out from India.

And how did it enter in Kuwait when airports are closed?

Very simple Bahrain, Dubai and many other GCC countries have not barred flight from India like what Kuwait did, so any one traveling to above countries and coming back to Kuwait might increase the chances of spreading Delta Strain..
