Kuwait government adopted a set of decisions Monday dealing with quarantine facilities and improving accommodation of workers amidst spread of coronavirus. The cabinet assigned the Public Authority of Sport to hand over the halls in Tadhamon Sport Club to the quarantine team to be transformed into a field emergency unit to support Farwaniya Hospital, government spokesman Tareq Al-Mezrem told an online news conference following a cabinet meeting.
The cabinet, he added, obliged all companies to provide housing units for their workers who were infected with coronavirus. Those units, he said, should be equipped with all necessary needs in line with Ministry of Health’s instructions.
The government, said Al-Mezrem, assigned Ministry of Finance to lease hotels to be used as quarantine facilities. The government also assigned the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources to coordinate with Kuwait Flour Mills Company to provide fodder to livestock owners.
The authority should also coordinate with Public Authority for Industry and the Environment Public Authority (EPA) to study possible establishment of light-industry factories within the farm land, used as recycling wasted fodder.
