Kuwait will require anyone who has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 for nine months to get a booster shot, the government communication centre tweeted on Monday.

Kuwait will also require incoming travellers to quarantine at home for 10 days unless they receive a negative PCR test for the coronavirus within 72 hours of their arrival.

As of Sunday, the Gulf emirate recorded a total of 414,098 cases, with 2,466 deaths since the start of the pandemic early last year.
