Total _ Lockdown _ from _ 10th _ May _ to _ 30th _ May

There have been many unconfirmed social media reports that the Kuwait government will mandate a country-wide 24/7 lockdown of Kuwait starting May 9, 2020 after the repatriations of Kuwaiti citizens has been completed
It is our understanding from these reports that both the Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Defense have presented their plans and recommendations to the Kuwaiti Cabinet in reference to a complete lockdown of Kuwait for at least 14 days
We do expect there tol be some announcements made in the coming days that will most likely address further movement restrictions within Kuwait. At minimum we expect the curfew hours to be extended by a further 2 hours and possibly additional neighborhoods to be placed under lockdown (e.g. Farwaniya and Khaytan).With Mahboula and Jleeb still under a full lockdown, if wider restrictions are implemented, residents will most likely be permitted to move around within their neighborhoods during non-curfew hours in order to buy essentials within their respective neighborhoods
Guidance:
