The Larnaca general hospital has prepared another 28 beds for Covid patients after seeing an uptick in admissions in the past few days, state services organisation Okypy said on Tuesday.
After a surge in admissions in the past few days, state hospitals are currently treating 149 patients with Covid-19, including 33 who are in high dependency units and 19 in intensive care units.
Okypy said that most of the patients, 77.1 per cent, are not vaccinated.
“As part of the ongoing reassessment of the situation, which continues to be manageable,” Okypy said, 28 more beds were prepared along with the necessary staff for patients with coronavirus.
Okypy said that with additions, the total number of beds for coronavirus patients in all its hospitals is more than 160 in ordinary wards.
It also said that more than 50 ICU beds are available at the Nicosia general hospital.
Okypy said that “as the custodian of public health” takes all necessary measures to ensure the health of citizens, through the uninterrupted provision of high-quality care and will continue to do whatever is necessary to achieve this goal.
