Kuwait to honor  those working in the front line to fight Covid-19

Kuwait government formed a committee with a mandate of honoring those working in the frontline in line with His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah's instructions.

Bader Al-Hamad, Undersecretary of the Civil Services Commission (CSC) said that Kuwait will honor the employees working between February 24 and May 31 financially.

He said the committee classified employees working during the pandemic crisis into three segments.

The first were employees of the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Health who were directly dealing with infected people and suspected infectees, said Al-Hamad.

The second, he added, were people working in government departments who were dealing with suspected cases, working in border crossings, quarantine facilities and clinics.

The third category, said Al-Hamad, were employees working in supporting lines who were assigned to work during the partial or full curfew.

Those employees, continued Al-Hamad, would be honored in accordance with the degree of risk they were exposed to: high and medium.

He said the government would consider people dying from the virus as martyrs, and infectees would be given a special allowance until their recovery.
