State health services organisation Okypy on Thursday called on the public not to try to enter Limassol general hospital, which has been closed to the public.
Okypy said that in cooperation with the epidemiology monitoring unit all protocols have been activated that call for a ban on entry to the hospital.
“We appeal to each and every person to act responsibly and follow the health ministry’s instructions for the protection of everyone’s health,” Okypy said in a written statement.
Limassol general hospital was closed after a paediatrician working there was found positive to coronavirus on Wednesday.
The hospital’s children’s ward was shut down immediately.
