Woman in quarantine dies home alone in Paphos

Son finds mother unresponsive at home where she was in self-isolation due to virus infection


A woman in Paphos died at home on Wednesday where she was staying in self-isolation, with authorities unsure whether her death was related to her virus infection.

Local media said a 52-year-old female had been self-isolating at her place of residence after having tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Reports said her son, who had been calling his mother without getting a response, went to the residence where he found the woman unresponsive.

The woman was rushed to the Emergency Room at Paphos General Hospital where doctors on duty pronounced her dead on arrival.

Police said they were investigating sudden death after ruling out foul play based on preliminary findings.

Health officials are awaiting the official post mortem before concluding whether the death was linked to a coronavirus infection.

No further details were known about the woman's health condition or the incident, which was the second known home death of an infected person.

Another man in his fifties recently died at home after reportedly refusing to go to the hospital, according to local media, with government officials saying he had not been vaccinated.
