Health authorities said Friday they have identified three cases of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus in Limassol.

All three cases concerned Greek Cypriots who had returned from a trip abroad early this month. None of them need hospitalisation.

Reports suggested the three were pupils who tested negative upon their arrival but were found positive after exhibiting symptoms a few days later.

Sequencing had been carried out by the institute of neurology and genetics.
