Evangelismos private hospital in Paphos announced on Friday a confirmed Covid-19 case in its premises, the second case in a Paphos private hospital in two days.
The hospital’s director Dr Nestoras Michael said that all necessary measures have been taken since they received the relevant reply from the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING), limiting its operations to the absolute necessary, while swabs have already been taken from all the patient’s recent contacts and sent to CING for testing. Test results are expected tomorrow.
Meanwhile, all areas at the private hospital have been disinfected, including surgery rooms, the ground floor and the lab.
It was added that the Obstetrics department would remain in operation and will be isolated from the rest of the hospital, albeit the confirmed case did not come into contact with the department, and outpatient appointments are suspended until Monday.
The A&E department remains open but new admissions are suspended except in life-threatening situations.
