The security forces close to the coast of the Mahboula and Mangaf region seized the vehicles carrying the 5 people, and interrogated them. They revealed that they are working for one of the largest American companies, and that their decision to leave the camp came at the request of the director of the American company, not the US army.
They admitted to the security forces that they were in contact with one of the positive coronavirus cases, which made it necessary to transfer them to the quarantine facilities run by the Ministry of Health.
The daily reported that approximately 8 days ago, the camp was placed under quarantine after a number of employees of the same American company, mixed with an infected Indian national who was working in the camp’s maintenance center. The concerned persons in the camp, the maintenance department and its personnel were placed under quarantine.
The Kuwaiti security authorities are closely monitoring those leaving the camp placed under quarantine as anyone leaving could potentially spread the infection in Kuwaiti society. There should be coordination with the U.S. Department of Health and the US army to uncover any other employees likely to be infected, to ensure their safety, under the assumption that the numbers of casualties are greater than the number reported.

We demand an adequate supply of proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for healthcare professionals working on the front lines in the COVID-19 pandemic. Sufficient stores of PPE are needed in order for them to stay safe and continue doing their jobs. If they are not protected, they will be a source of transmission to the entire community and a danger to patients. Their safety must be a priority during this pandemic. Petition Link

'Hello ladies, as you may know, my sister and our fellow Expat married to a Kuwaiti, Kelly Schrapp is the ID consultant for covid patients in Kuwait. They are running out of PPE here. We would like to start sewing masks for the medical workers, and possibly buying disposable hazmat suits to give to our doctors. If you're interested in being a part if this, please comment.'If anyone wants to help send me an email and I can coordinate with the lady requesting help. Any updates I get I will post them.

There's been discussions about landlords helping out the renters during this time of hardship with people being out of work and having financial problems. The top one is the request from my residence and the other is a friend of mine in Hadiya.
We were both denied and asked to pay full rent. As I've been told by other renters the owner of the building has it registered as private and not commercial meaning no one can put their CID residence on this location, we can't get individual phone lines and I was told I couldn't have a satellite, I could only have the Arabic stuff that the house has but finally was allowed to have OSN. I was also told the landlord purposely rented out to people who word for the government knowing they would always get a salary if anything happens. The last surprise was thinking there were six apartments in the building that turned into 14 now.
Now I will have a whole list of questions for the next place I plan on renting with after dealing with surprises here.
