Coronavirus: One new case reported on Tuesday

One new coronavirus case was announced by the health ministry on Tuesday, bringing the total to 918.

Announcing the case, virologist Leontios Kostrikis said they processed a total of 1,882 tests, and the case arose from 276 tests processed by state hospital laboratories.

Kostrikis said 123 tests from contact tracing were processed, 461 from retail and construction workers, 387 conducted on private initiative, 114 on vulnerable groups, five on repatriated individuals, two on workers in hair salons and other beauty industries, and 514 from schools, which all returned negative.

“We have every reason to be satisfied with the results of today’s testing,” Kostrikis said.

He added the small amount of cases show the country and the community have made a great effort over the past two months.

Commenting on the situation in the hospitals, the scientific director of the state health services (Okypy), Dr Marios Loizou said three people were being treated at the Famagusta General reference hospital.

One of them is in the advanced care unit, and one individual was discharged from the hospital earlier today.

Meanwhile, three people are still intubated at the intensive care unit in Nicosia General.  One more person is being treated in intensive care but is not on a ventilator.
