Kuwait Ports Authority announced Sunday suspending ships coming from Iran in Shuaiba, Doha and Shuwaikh ports, due to the spread of Coronavirus there.
This is a precaution measure taken to prevent the virus from entering Kuwait, and is part of the country's plan to fight the virus, Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) quoted the authority's Director General Sheikh Youssef Abdullah Sabah Al-Nasser Al-Sabah as saying in a press statement on Sunday.
The decision comes in line with the plan developed by the government to take all necessary measures to combat the virus.
On Saturday, Iran announced that confirmed infection cases rose to 28, including five deaths. (QNA)
