Coronavirus: 7 patients discharged so far from Famagusta referral hospital, 19 being treated

Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Health Christina Yiannaki said that until Wednesday seven patients have been discharged at Famagusta Hospital, the referral hospital for Covid-19, while 19 patients are still being treated there.

One of the seven discharged was a man who was released on Wednesday around noon, she said, after the results of his second test came out negative.

One of the 19 patients being treated at Famagusta hospital is a doctor who was transferred there on Wednesday from a Paphos private clinic.

One patient is being treated at the unit of increased care and his general health was described as good.

Another patient is being treated in the ICU of Limassol hospital and another four in the ICU of Nicosia hospital.

Until Wednesday morning, 30 people total were said to have been treated at Famagusta hospital, including the seven that were discharged.

The referral hospital has been boosted with an ICU specialist and the respiratory diseases unit has been operating since Tuesday with the “Drive-through method”.

In addition, a specialised machine was set up at the Referral Hospital to determine the genome of the virus.

Specialised equipment is also expected on Thursday to allow rapid analysis of samples and bring out the results on the same day, speeding up the whole process.

Famagusta Hospital has 110 beds plus 10 beds for kidney patients of the Famagusta district, who visit the hospital for dialysis.
