Pharmacies and cooperative societies are also allowed to operate during the 12-hour curfew, with their services to be limited to deliveries.

Worshippers in Kuwait will be allowed to walk to nearby mosques during a partial curfew due to take effect next week to limit the spread of COVID-19, religious authorities have said.

The curfew will come into effect on Sunday for a month running daily from 5pm to 5am, the latest in a series of measures taken by Kuwait amid a surge in coronavirus cases in the country.

Mosques will not be shut during the curfew, but worshippers will be allowed only to head to mosques near their houses on foot, Minister of Awqaf Isa Al Kandari told Al Qabas newspaper.
