Health ministry announces 9 more cases bringing total to 39

Among the total 39 new cases announced Monday, 33 were imported, of which 19 were arrivals from the Greek island of Mykonos


The health ministry announced an additional nine new coronavirus cases on Monday, after 30 that were detected on Sunday at Cyprus airports were already announced earlier in the day.

The nine new cases emerged after 3,176 lab tests were conducted to check samples for the virus, and brought total known cases to 1,460.

The nine new cases involved three contacts of other known cases, one person with a recent history of travel to Argentina who took the initiative to get tested, and two who fall under special health groups.

The remaining three new cases involved airport arrivals. One is an asymptomatic person who arrived from Romania on Sunday, described as a Romanian national permanently residing in Cyprus.

The other two arrived at Larnaca airport from Mykonos on Sunday, but the health ministry said these two were not among the 17 new cases involving arrivals from Mykonos that were announced earlier on Monday, as those were on a flight that had landed in Paphos.

The 39 total cases that were announced on Monday emerged from a bulk of 3,522 lab tests, with 33 involving imported cases (19 from Mykonos, 10 from the Netherlands, three from London, and one from Romania).

The Famagusta General Hospital is treating two coronavirus patients in general wards, while a third coronavirus patient is being treated in the Nicosia General Hospital ICU.
