The number of countries with a travel ban has risen to 68

This brings the number of foreign countries banned from traveling directly to Kuwait to 68.

The move also comes on the heels of reports of a new virus that has been genetically modified by Kovid 19 in these areas. The new list includes Germany, Japan, Ireland, Portugal, South Africa, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey, the UAE and the USA.
