Coronavirus: 14 new cases (Updated)

Fourteen new coronavirus cases were detected on Wednesday the health ministry announced.

This brings the total to 1,291 cases.

Four of them concern people who arrived from abroad including a Cypriot couple living permanently in the UK who came to Cyprus to visit their family. They arrived on Tuesday from Manchester and got tested at the airport. They had no symptoms.

One man from Greece arrived form Thessaloniki on Tuesday. He too did not have any symptoms.

The fourth case is an Austrian man who arrived from Hania, Crete on Tuesday.

Eight more cases were contacts of people who already tested positive to the virus.

Two of them are people who tested privately after presenting symptoms. They are part of a cluster created during a beach party in which 30 people participated. More people who had gone to that party tested positive in the past few days.

Four of the remaining six are family members of a person who tested positive earlier. The other two, who are also contacts, did not have any symptoms.

One person works at the PIP plastic factory and tested positive after two people working there were found to have the virus. Wednesday’s case, who had no symptoms, was detected during the private testing the company had arranged for all of its staff after the two first cases emerged.

The last case was a person who tested positive after presenting symptoms.

Wednesday’s cases were among 3,775 lab tests.
