The lab receives local, and imported fish referred to it by the Kuwait Municipality. So far, it has not examined the dead fish, he said.

The ministry is playing due role, coordinating and cooperating with the bodies concerned with food safety , such as the Environment Public Authority (EPA), Al-Shatti said. He urged citizens and expats not to buy fish from the unlicensed and unofficial outlets that do not apply the least standards and conditions of food safety.

Deadline reminder for illegal foreigners in Saudi Arabia

GHHH

Only 60 days left to legalise residence and work status

Foreigners staying illegally in Saudi Arabia were on Thursday warned that they had now only 60 days to avail of a grace period to regularise their situations.

"All those who are breaking the rules regarding residence and work permits should quickly benefit of the royal order and pardons granted to them under a special programme," the Passport Directorate General said. "The grace period will end in two months. Foreigners keen on benefiting from it should contact any of the 75 centres across the kingdom to legalise their stay."

In March, illegal expatriates were warned that they would have to pay fines of up to 100,000 riyals if they failed to regularise their situation or leave the country within the 90-day amnesty.

“This is a chance that may not come again for violators and they should seize it,” Sulaiman Al Yahya, the head of Passports, said. “Under the amnesty, they are exempted from paying fines for breaking the law and from being fingerprinted which is used to bar deportees from re-entering the kingdom. Those who are caught following the amnesty will pay fines ranging from 15,000 to 100,000 riyals,” he said.

On March 19, Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Nayef announced the “Nation Free of Violators” campaign to help undocumented expatriates regularise their status. Under the amnesty that started on March 29, any foreigner who was breaking the residency and work laws and regulations will be able to leave the kingdom without paying any fines or being subject to legal action.

The violator will also be able to return later to work legally in Saudi Arabia since he would not go through the fingerprinting process usually applied to deportees who would not be allowed back into the kingdom.

According to Al Yahya, the “Nation Free of Violators” campaign targets foreigners who have overstayed their visit or work permits or entered Saudi Arabia with Haj, Umrah, visit or transit visas and failed to leave before their expiry. It also applies to those who have not renewed their permits and those who entered the kingdom illegally.

“Several government ministries and agencies are actively involved in the campaign and there will be no leniency towards violators,” he said. Mansoor Al Turki, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior, said that those who had broken the residency and work laws should settle their personal rights and dues before they start the online departure process through the websites of the labour ministry or the passport department.

“Those who have overstayed their Haj, Umrah, visit or transit visas do not have to contact any government agency or authority and may head to any exit point and leave the country,” he said. “Foreigners who have absconded and have been reported as missing by their employers should contact the nearest expatriates’ department to complete the departure process.”

In 2013, then King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz gave a 90-day grace period to allow foreigners staying illegally in Saudi Arabia to legalise their status or leave the Kingdom without any penalty or fine. According to the General Authority for Statistics, more than 12 million of the 32 million people who live in Saudi Arabia are foreigners. No figure of how many were staying illegally was available.

Why you should NEVER walk barefoot in the gym

Man caught infection that left his foot blistering and bleeding - and he needed a skin graft made from FISH SCALES to repair it

An unnamed Texas man says he contracted a flesh-eating infection after showering barefoot at the gym and needed skin graft surgery using fish scales to repair the open wounds (seen after the skin graft surgery)

A Texas man caught a grave flesh-eating infection after showering barefoot at the gym. The man, who has not been named, says what he originally thought was a singular wart grew to five, spreading across his foot and developing open wounds. Despite trying everything to heal it, the wounds only continued to grow. Now having undergone skin graft surgery, using fish scales, the man says he's sharing his photos to warn others of the dangers that live on shower floors. 

A listener of The Rod Ryan Show on KTBZ-FM The Buzz, who wishes to remain anonymous, sent an email to the show about why you should always wear shoes in public showers, along with some pictures of his ordeal. The man was training for a marathon at his local gym and would make a point to go train during his lunch breaks.

'There were a few occasions where I left out my flip flops that I would use when I showered, but not wanting to go back to work sweaty and smelly I made the decision to shower barefoot,' he said.  Soon, the man noticed there was a spot at the bottom of his left foot, harder than the rest of the flesh, that began to itch but he didn't think anything of it. He was told he had a plantar wart - a benign foot tumor caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).

 

'Not wanting to impact my training, I let it go and tried to treat it using any remedy I could find online,' he said.   'I tried duct tape, banana peels, vinegar, and OTC (over-the-counter) acid treatments with no success. It wasn't until after my run approximately six months later that I went and saw someone.' The man says that the doctor he saw began to treat the wart with cantharidin, an agent made from a beetle that causes the area it comes in contact with to blister.  The agent attempts to get your body to recognize that it is trying to fight an infection and to kill it naturally.

Every week, the doctor would cut away the blistered skin and apply the ointment onto the fresh skin.   

While training for a marathon at his gym during lunch breaks, the man said there were times he left his flip flops he used for the shower at home. 'But not wanting to go back to work sweaty and smelly I made the decision to shower barefoot,' he saidSoon the man noticed a small bump on his skin and was told he had a plantar wart, which is caused by HPV. No remedies that he tried worked

One wart on the man's foot turned into five warts and the virus took over, developing several open wounds. The same treatments were tried, but at a much higher concentration, which caused the man's foot to swell and unable to be placed down on the floor

But then the virus began to spread - one wart soon turned into five and treatments weren't working. 'I went through the same treatments, but at a much higher concentration,' the man said. 'My entire foot would swell and the pain was so bad, I couldn't walk. I couldn't even put my leg down as the blood rushing to my foot would cause the skin to swell and put me in excruciating pain.' 

After several months of excruciating pain, the man decided to undergo surgery in February 2017.  He underwent a skin graft trial, using grafts made from North Atlantic Cod, before the wounds finally started to close up. It's been two months since the surgery and he says he will need at least one month before he can walk properly.  Now, he says, he's warning people to not make the same mistake he made. 'Do yourself a favor, wear shoes in any public area where there is water. This virus thrives in those areas,' the man said. 'The scary thing is, the virus can live for over two years on the surfaces as well. Take care of your feet so they can take care of you.'
