After suffering for more than two years from severe exceptional measures such as closure, partial and total bans, and changing various aspects of life, Kuwait breathed a sigh of relief as it begins a new phase of life returning to normal. On the first day of implementing Cabinet decisions to ease the Covid-19 restrictions that were imposed to contain the spread of the virus people were all smiles as they could freely enter shops and supermarkets irrespective of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

To shed light on the impact of these decisions on the local situation in general, Al-Anba sought the opinion of a number of citizens and residents to determine their level of satisfaction.

Hawash Hussein said he supports easing restrictions and returning life to normal, noting that people had become bored and psychologically affected. He added, if everyone adheres to the health requirements, everything should be fine.

Hind Al-Ahmad stated she is not with the decision to allow everyone to enter the malls, because the situation is still dangerous and the number of infections may increase and supported measures to be taken against those who want to enter any public place while adhering to health requirements.

Talal Al-Enezi explained with life returning to normal, all activities must be opened, and even those who received the vaccine are known to have been infected with the virus, pointing out that prevention and strengthening immunity is most important but said life should be normal as it was before the outbreak of the pandemic.

Ahmed Al-Rashidi said: “We hope that the restrictions will be completely removed, and that vaccination will be compulsory for everyone, but unfortunately there are many doctors who spoke negatively about the vaccine and scared away the people, but since things are fine now, there is no objection to opening complexes and public places for everyone. The Ministry of Health is performing its duty to the fullest.”

For his part, Mosab Ghanem pointed out that he is not with the easing of restrictions for fear of increasing infections, and everyone should receive the vaccine to ensure safety because the epidemic is still spreading.

In the same context, Umm Khaled indicated that health requirements are necessary and Kuwait, like other countries, must ease restrictions for everyone, indicating that people were divided into two groups, one of those who support receiving the vaccine and the other rejecting it, and for this reason, life must return to normal for all, but with adherence to the requirements.
