Later on Monday, daily Politis reported that a junior doctor at Nicosia general hospital had also tested positive for the virus. He has been self-isolating at home as were four other people considered to be his close contacts.

Quoting the spokesman of the state health services organisation, Charalambos Charilaou, Politis said the doctor had undergone testing on his own initiative.
