Paphos: 2 Britons among Sunday’s 6 positive cases

Two of the six coronavirus cases announced on Easter Sunday are Britons, permanent Paphos residents, CNA reports.

Tracing of their contacts has already started, it added.

Meanwhile, a nurse at Paphos General Hospital recently returned to work after nearly a month at home recuperating from Covid-19 and then self-isolating.

She underwent a test before returning to work with a negative result.

However, CNA said that she underwent yet another test during the week leading up to Easter as part of the programme to test all personnel working for public hospitals, with the result described as inconclusive.

She was asked to take another test before returning to work. That result came back negative, but according to CNA, the test will be repeated.
