 Kuwait has banned commercial flights coming from Afghanistan until further notice, the civil aviation authority said in a Tweet on Sunday, APA reports citing Reuters.

It did not give a reason, but other local media cited the adding of Afghanistan to a list of banned countries because of a high coronavirus risk.

Kuwait has already banned commercial flights between 31 countries, including Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq and Iran, regarded as high risk due the number of COVID-19 cases there.
