Six flights evacuate Kuwaitis from Iran, Thailand

KUWAIT, Feb 29 (KUNA) -- Five flights have arrived at Kuwait International Airport from Tehran, capital city of Iran, and one from Bangkok, capital of Thailand, on Saturday with Kuwaiti nationals on board.
Upon their arrival at Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Terminal, the evacuees underwent preliminary medical tests to make sure they are free of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, said Assistant Undersecretary of the Health Ministry Dr. Buthaina Al-Mudhaf.
"The arrivals from Tehran have to remain in quarantine while those from Thailand will be under observation at home," she told KUNA.
"The persons who suffer from chronic illnesses, such as the heart disease, were admitted into a specific hospital to verify their health condition," she pointed out. Affirming her earlier statement that no new COVID-19 cases were detected today, Dr. Al-Mudhaf said the previously confirmed 45 patients are in stable condition. (pickup previous) mak.msa.gb
