Coronavirus: One more case in the north, total at 92 (Updated)

One more person in the north tested positive for coronavirus (Covid-19) on Monday, the ‘health minister’ Ali Pilli reported, raising the total number of cases to 92.

Pilli said a total of 323 tests were conducted, and one more person from Lapithos tested positive.

According to the ‘minister,’ 47 individuals were undergoing treatment for the virus, and two people were in intensive care, with one of them being given respiratory support by a ventilator.

Meanwhile, reports on Monday said, individuals who were on the same flight with the three cases reported on Sunday, will have to remain in the quarantine hotels awaiting new test results.

The cases included two Turkish Cypriot students and one seven-year-old child, who arrived from the UK on March 21.

The ‘government’ also announced on Sunday night, people could only move within their district, and police check on vehicles would be conducted in Vasilia, Lapithos, and Karavas.

The north also issued a 9pm curfew last week to ensure the public’s safety. So far, authorities have booked 414 individuals in total, 217 of whom broke the curfew order.

Two new charter flights from the UK will arrive on April 6 and 7 to return Turkish Cypriots stuck abroad to the north. People returning will remain in supervised quarantine for 14 days upon their return.
