Violators could be jailed up to three years or fined up to 10,000 dinars.

Kuwait will impose a partial curfew on Sunday as part of the fight against the novel coronavirus, according to the official news agency KUNA.

The curfew will last from 5pm local time until 4am (1400-0100GMT), KUNA said.

Violators could be jailed up to three years or fined up to 10,000 dinars ($33,000), Deputy Prime Minister Anas Al Saleh said.

He said the curfew was imposed due to non-compliance with the precautionary measures to fight the coronavirus spread.

Al Saleh said the Kuwaiti Cabinet also decided to extend a suspension of the government and private sectors for another two weeks
