A Nicosia nightclub was fined €8,000 for violating coronavirus protocols, following more than 1,000 checks in the last 24 hours in the capital, police said early on Friday.

According to police, the club was fined for allowing more customers than the maximum number of people permitted in the premises in accordance with social distancing rules and for failing to present the necessary coronavirus signage.

During the 1,027 checks in the capital, seven people were also booked for violating the measures, police said.

The checks were carried out between 6am on Thursday and 6am on Friday, as part of the 2,360 inspections in the government-controlled areas.

Following 134 checks in Paphos, three people were fined as well as a kiosk which was booked for €500 after officers found the manager working without a face mask.

Six people were also booked in Limassol after 214 checks, while another six were fined in Famagusta after 333 checks.

No violations were reported in Larnaca and Morphou following 442 and 72 checks respectively.
