Cyprus has submitted a full report to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) regarding the serious thrombotic incident which afflicted a 39-year-old British woman.

The incident was first reported on Thursday, and relates to a woman who had been vaccinated on May 6 in Paphos and is now being cared for at the Nicosia general hospital – as her condition remains serious.

Health ministry official Elena Panayiotopoulou, of the pharmaceutical services, spoke to CNA on Friday and said that a full report with all the details relating to the incident have been compiled and have been sent to the EMA.

It is currently not clear to what extent, if at all, the vaccination is linked to the incident.

Panayiotopoulou said that the 39-year-old had not been receiving any other type of medication and did not appear to have a previous medical history of thrombosis.

The health ministry official said that they are waiting the findings on the report from the EMA and will announce any further updates to the public as soon as possible.
