The world is currently facing a serious pandemic of Coronavirus (COVID 19) which started in Wuhan, China, and was then transmitted rapidly to other countries. These countries applied different methods and procedures in an attempt to prevent or reduce and/or control the incident cases and manage prevalent cases. This paper discusses the methods and procedures applied in the State of Kuwait to control this epidemic, and how effective they have been. The State of Kuwait followed the WHO, European CDC, US CDC, and/or other countries’ institutional guidelines, and is still working on containing the disease, given the rising number of cases among Kuwaitis returning from affected areas such as the UK and USA, and migrant workers who bear the highest burden, given their cramped living conditions.
