Girl with strep A improving


The four-year-old girl being treated for strep A in Israel is no longer intubated and is in a better condition, the health ministry confirmed on Wednesday.

She has been Israel for six weeks and was intubated early on due to her critical condition.

Health Minister Michalis Hadjipantela said “this is good news. I hope everything goes smoothly and that she will be back in Cyprus soon.”

The ministry’s communications advisor Konstantinos Athanasiou told CNA the girl “is being treated and her condition is improved”.

She was transferred to Israel in December shortly before Christmas in a stable but critical condition.
