No new Covid-19 cases in Cyprus on Saturday

Cyprus on Saturday recorded no new coronavirus cases for the first time since the start of the outbreak here several weeks ago.

In an announcement, the Health Ministry said there were no new Covid-19 cases today after 2,414 tests. This means the total number of cases remains 927.

Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou marked the news with a message on Twitter.

“Since March 9 when the first 2 positive cases were found in Cyprus, today is the first time that we do not have a new case. The result is no coincidence. The efforts of one and all are paying off. We continue with the same determination,” he wrote.


The following tests were carried out on Saturday:

  • None from 10,000 tests of hairdressers and catering establishments (349 tests today)
  • None from hospital labs (170 tests today)
  • None from the schools (1007 tests today)
