 The Ministry of Health is taking all precautions necessary to ward off the onset of Coronavirus in the country by, among other measures, forming a highly-specialized panel of health experts to prepare well-researched guidelines that can help the ministry in its plan to fight this disease if it ever appears in Kuwait.

The ministry has also put together a team of experts whose task is to respond instantly with diagnostic and treatment advice to any clinic, hospital, whether in the public or private sectors that might face potential cases of this disease.
Only three cases have really been diagnosed with the coronavirus in Kuwait and have been promptly dealt with.
The WHO, in its statistics about the pervasiveness of this disease worldwide, published last April, noted that there have been 254 documented cases of the disease, 93 of them ended in the death of the patients. The statistics also indicated that the country with the most cases is Saudi Arabia.

Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a viral respiratory illness first reported in Saudi Arabia in 2012. It is caused by a coronavirus called MERS-CoV. Most people who have been confirmed to have MERS-CoV infection developed severe acute respiratory illness. They had fever, cough, and shortness of breath. More than 30 percent of these people died.
