The contact tracing team has warned that new coronavirus cases will be rising over the next few days in Cyprus, as people with confirmed infections do not state their close contacts, leading to the spread of the virus.
Epidemiologist Valentinos Silvestros, member of the contact tracing unit, told CNA that the team has a great number of contacts to deal with from the family, professional and social activity of every individual that is confirmed as positive.
Silvestros said that additional cases will emerge from active clusters, while certain of the cases contacts have already reported symptoms.
He added that some of the people infected spread the virus far more easily than others, depending on sociability too.
As people move freely, he added, contacts from confirmed cases have multiplied.
