Three new coronavirus cases, all with travel history

The health ministry announced three new cases which have a history of travel to India, South Africa, and the UK


Three new coronavirus cases were detected in the Republic of Cyprus on Thursday, when 2,452 tests were conducted, raising total known cases since the outbreak of the pandemic to 1,517.

All three new cases got tested privately and have a history of travel, the health ministry said.

One involves an asymptomatic Indian man permanently residing in Cyprus, who returned to the island from India on August 20 and got tested prior to returning to work.

The second involves an asymptomatic person from South Africa, from where they returned on August 29. Two days prior to completing their two-week isolation requirement, they got tested as required by national protocols, with the test coming back positive.

Thursday’s final new case involves a Cypriot permanently residing in the UK who flew over to Cyprus on September 5 to visit family. He developed symptoms two days later and took the initiative to get tested.

The Famagusta general hospital is currently treating three coronavirus patients, one of which is in the ICU. Another coronavirus patient is receiving treatment and the Nicosia general hospital ICU.
