Coronavirus: Three cases in the north on Sunday

Three coronavirus cases were identified on Sunday as the result of 1,414 tests in the north, Turkish Cypriot authorities announced on Monday.

All of them arrived via the airport.

The ‘cabinet’ will meet on Monday to discuss additional measures after an increase in cases over the last few days was observed.

‘Health minister’ Ali Pili said on Sunday two patients had recovered and were released from hospital.

The total number of tests carried out in the north is 95,825 and the number of cases 209, while 62 people are still being treated, none in the intensive care unit.

On Saturday, Pili said there were 13 cases, and urged people to observe social distancing and wear masks.

Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci called for more tests on all arrivals from airports and ports, as well as for random sampling at checkpoints.
