Kuwait has lifted all COVID-19 restrictions for vaccinated people, its prime minister, Sheikh Sabah Khalid Al-Hamad Al-Sabah, told a news conference on Wednesday.


Kuwait airport will resume operating at full capacity from Oct. 24, the cabinet spokesman told the same news conference.


The Gulf country has been witnessing a gradual return to normal life as daily cases of coronavirus have steadily declined.


The latest easing includes permitting the holding of conferences, weddings and other social events, provided that attendance is limited to those who have been vaccinated.


Wearing masks remains mandatory in public places.
