Two patients admitted into the Famagusta General Hospital last week with coronavirus are expected to be discharged on Monday, the Cyprus News Agency said.
The two had been hospitalized last Wednesday after they began showing symptoms upon their return from the UK.
The pair will remain in isolation for 14 days at the Government holiday properties in Troodos.
The two to be released along with six other coronavirus carriers being treated at the Famagusta hospital were in good health.
Of concern however is the condition of an elderly UK national being treated in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, though his condition is not considered critical.
Health Ministry: Hospital discharge does not mean return to normal daily activities
Health Ministry sources stressed that those being discharged from the Famagusta General Hospital on Monday will not be returning home to resume their normal daily lives, but will be moved to designated Government premises in Troodos where they are to remain for 14 days.
During this time, their health will continue to be monitored and samples will be sent for a second coronavirus lab test once symptoms subside. After the two weeks, the pair may be sent home if they remain in good health and tests emerge negative for the virus.
