One pregnant woman was diagnosed after being tested before her admission to hospital for labour while the last case is a person who had symptoms.

Of the 15 cases detected late on Saturday and were initially announced on Sunday morning, 10 were among people tested as part of the 3,000 random tests provided by the government and all concern Limassol: six of them are random cases and three are contacts of people who tested positive at an earlier stage and are part of the cluster that started from a person who had arrived from the US.
