Kuwait to DNA Test Everyone

How is it not used to determine genealogy if they are looking for terrorists?
If they are thinking of this as a type of blood test, that doesn't stop people from being setup. Nick someone's hair at the salon and throw it around the crime scene?

Isn't the past conviction rate of innocent people in the USA based on blood evidence extremely bad?

Also read that Kuwait has extreme adultery laws?

Refusal will be one year in prison.

Why is genealogy the main issue? What about private health information?
