Specifically, one person had a symptom (loss of scent) and had the test done privately.
The second person had a fever and was tested through the Public Health Clinics.
Both new incidents are from Limassol.
It is very important, the Ministry of Health stresses, to point out that, based on the latest cases of domestic cases, it seems that the virus is still active within the community and therefore everyone is required to show responsibility, to respect the measures and to contact their GP immediately should they experience any symptoms of the virus.
Based on today’s data the total number of confirmed cases is now 1,047.
