KUWAIT: Volunteers exerted huge efforts in helping organize work at co-operative societies around Kuwait. Between sanitizing equipment, checking customers’ temperatures, providing them with gloves, facemasks and hand sanitizers, and arranging their entry to co-op branches by Civil ID; a practice that largely helped limit crowding, volunteers have played a major role in aiding authorities’ efforts to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Kuwait on Wednesday ended volunteers’ work at co-ops in order to protect them from contracting the highly contagious virus. – Photos by Fouad Al-Shaikh
