A small increase in the number of Covid cases in Cyprus has been recorded in the last few days although this is not a cause for concern, the state health service said on Monday.

“It is not worrying, we had a small increase and that was expected,” Okypy spokesman Charalambos Charilaou said.

“It is not an issue. It is the summer holidays, there are crowds and the measures have been relaxed, as with everywhere. There is no need to worry,” he added.

State hospitals are currently treating around 30 patients, Charilaou said.

One person in a serious condition is being treated in the ICU and two people in the high dependency unit. The cases mostly concern the elderly.

“They are mild incidents. We are not concerned at all,” Charilaou concluded.
