Kuwait adjusts curfew, re-opens hotels

DUBAI (Reuters) - Kuwait’s cabinet has decided to ease the Gulf country’s partial curfew slightly so that it now begins at 9 p.m. (1800 GMT) and ends at 3 a.m. (midnight GMT), the country’s Center for Government Communication said on Twitter on Thursday.

The country also announced on Thursday that it would enter “phase three” of its coronavirus restrictions on July 28, meaning that hotels and resorts would re-open and taxis would be able to operate.

The previous curfew had been between 8 p.m. (1700 GMT) and 5 a.m. (0200 GMT). The decision will be reviewed in a cabinet meeting after the Eid Al Adha break, the tweet said.
