KUWAIT The Ministry of Health said Monday 146 citizens who were repatriated yesterday were transferred to mandatory quarantine while the remaining 2,933 were sent to home quarantine.
Six persons were transferred to Jaber Al-Ahmad Hospital because medical workers testing incoming passengers at the airport suspected that they have coronavirus symptoms, MoH’s Assistant Undersecretary for Technical Affairs Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Mutairi said.
Al-Mutairi, also the supervisor on medical testing facilities at Kuwait International Airport, said four cases were transferred to different hospitals to continue their treatment they were undergoing abroad.
Al-Mutairi said 3,089 Kuwaiti citizens were repatriated on 27 flights yesterday.
This is the first phase of the repatriation that will last until tomorrow.
