In­com­ing rush caus­ing traf­fic chaos at bor­der

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT CITY, Sept 26: Nuwaiseeb bor­der wit­nessed traf­fic con­ges­tion in the last two days, par­tic­u­larly on the side of trav­el­ers com­ing to the coun­try, due to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of health pro­ce­dures such as the coro­n­avirus test­ing be­fore en­ter­ing the coun­try, re­ports Al-Qabas daily.

A num­ber of cit­i­zens ex­pressed dis­sat­is­fac­tion be­cause they had to wait for long hours be­fore they could en­ter the coun­try, not to men­tion the small num­ber of Health Min­istry em­ploy­ees spe­cial­ized in corona swab test­ing.

Sources dis­closed the num­ber of ar­rivals is huge — more than 1,000 ve­hi­cles per day; thereby, caus­ing traf­fic con­ges­tion and con­fu­sion at work. This ne­ces­si­tates rad­i­cal so­lu­tions through the co­or­di­nated ef­forts of the health and in­te­rior min­istries, sources pointed out.

In­formed sources from the Min­istry of Health un­veiled a plan to in­crease the num­ber of doc­tors and nurses as­signed in the med­i­cal clinic at the bor­der to fa­cil­i­tate pro­ce­dures for cit­i­zens en­ter­ing the coun­try.
