Daily coronavirus infection rates reported by Kuwait have soared past previous peaks recorded in the summer of 2021.

Kuwait on Sunday reported 2,999 new cases of COVID-19, its fourth day of case numbers exceeding a high of 1,993 seen in July last year.

Kuwait had seen below 50 daily cases during the last quarter of 2021.

The Health Ministry called on citizens and expats to restrict travelling abroad to emergency cases only, and urged travelers coming from abroad to abide by the health quarantine regulations.
