Coronavirus: UNFICYP steps up measures to protect peacekeepers

The UN Mission in Cyprus (UNFICYP) has stepped up measures to protect peacekeepers, ensuring the continuity of UN operations and preventing the potential spread of COVID-19 in the country, the UN secretary general’s spokesman Stéphane Dujarric has said.

“UNFICYP is making every effort to guarantee that necessary humanitarian deliveries continue to affected people living in the north. All new peacekeepers will undergo a 14-day period of isolation before starting their duties with the mission and civilian staff have been instructed to telecommute wherever possible,” he added.
