Coronavirus: Cyprus reports first death

Cyprus registered its first death from coronavirus on Saturday involving an individual who had underlying health issues.

In an announcement late on Saturday night, the Health Ministry said a patient, initially admitted to Paphos General Hospital with low life expectancy as he suffered from  liver cirrhosis, acute liver failure, acute renal failure and chronic heart problems, had died.

He had tested positive for Covid-19 after tests were carried out among contacts of another patient at the same clinic who had tested positive, something which aggravated his condition.

The patient had been transferred for further treatment to Famagusta General Hospital in Paralimni, which is the referral hospital for coronavirus, where he died tonight.

The deceased is understood to be British, aged 70, according to philenews.

Earlier on Saturday the Health Ministry had announced nine new confirmed coronavirus cases, bringing the total to 84.
