The COVID-19 pandemic had a devastating effect on the global economy, and Kuwait had its fair share. This study examines the impact of COVID-19 on the performance of banks in Kuwait. A pre-and post-COVID-19 statistical analysis was conducted between the largest conventional and Islamic banks in Kuwait. The correlation coefficient and analysis of variance are conducted at the 5% level of significance and 95% confidence level. Additionally, a comparative approach is adopted to ensure the proper analysis of the effect of COVID-19 on the performance of 10 banks in Kuwait.
