“It is unfortunate that one of the nursing personnel died in this way due to the lack of protection and the provision of medical care, pointing out that he asked the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health a short time ago to open a comprehensive investigation of all the parties to the tragic incident, the coming days will bear a lot,” says the chairman.
According to the report of Arabtimes: “The Preventive Health, Nursing, and Ambulance Team all have knowledge of the nurse’s condition, who died today as a result of her stay in the nurse’s residence for more than 3 days, and all of them knew of her infection with the virus.

According to the press release by the Ministry’s Moral Guidance and Public Relations Directorate, the effort is part of the joint cooperation efforts of Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences, The Defense, and the Ministry of Health.
