Two of the patients, one of whom aged 70, had contracted the virus from a British patient at the ICU of Paphos Hospital and were then transferred to Famagusta Hospital — the referral hospital for the virus — for further treatment.

The third person discharged is aged 80 and was among the first cases that came out positive that were transferred to the referral hospital.
