According to Kuwait's Ministry of Health, a national who returned from a neighboring country suffering from a cholera outbreak showed symptoms of the disease.
A statement from the ministry said the infected citizen had been isolated and was being treated at a ministry hospital.
According to the ministry, those who contacted the case were dealt with in accordance with the relevant protocols.
In spite of ruling out the possibility of a cholera outbreak, the ministry advised nationals and residents to avoid unsafe water and food sources while traveling to countries with cholera outbreaks.
The report encouraged those with suspected cholera symptoms, such as fever and diarrhea, to seek medical treatment at the nearest health center within seven days of their arrival from a cholera-endemic country.
