Coronavirus: Another patient tests positive, brings total to 7

Another patient has tested positive for coronavirus, the Health Ministry announced on Thursday.

This brings the total to seven.

It said the latest case was an individual who had recently returned from the UK and after exhibiting symptoms contacted the call centre at 1420 yesterday.

Protocols were activated and samples sent to CING which today confirmed that it was positive.

The person is in self-isolation and the ministry has already started tracing his contacts.

Cyprus has a total of seven cases, four of which have come from the UK.

Once again the Health Ministry appealed to the public to only use 1420 to report symptoms and not to seek general information.

More later.
