According to reports by foreign news agencies, cases of the virus are also coming to Europe and the Middle East, and the administration there is taking steps to prevent it.

Meanwhile, Kuwait's state-run news agency Kona reported that 3 people, including a Saudi citizen, were infected with the new Coronavirus in Kuwait, who had returned from Iran.
