Kuwait Urges Citizens To Postpone Travel Plans As Global COVID-19 Infections Rise

DUBAI: The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry has urged its citizens to postpone their travel dates due to the global increase in coronavirus infections, the official KUNA news agency reported.

The ministry said the spike in cases forced countries to change their security measures, including imposing lockdowns and canceling or delaying flights.

Meanwhile, unvaccinated UAE citizens will be banned from leaving the country from January 10, the country’s foreign ministry and national crisis and disaster management authorities said.

The United Arab Emirates hit a new record for daily coronavirus infections on Saturday with 2,556 confirmed cases, state news agency WAM reported.

The World Health Organization has warned that a COVID-19 “tsunami” is expected to overwhelm health systems, as record increases fueled by the omicron variant have once again dampened New Year’s celebrations around the world.

Governments are walking a tightrope between anti-virus restrictions and the need to keep societies and economies open, as the highly transmissible variant has driven cases to levels never seen before in the United States, Britain, in France and Denmark.
