Police are ready to carry out an unprecedented plan of action to ensure that new stricter measures to prevent the coronavirus spread in Cyprus are duly enforced, according to Philenews.
The new measures, including almost a complete lockdown for Limassol and Paphos districts, were announced late on Wednesday and come in effect on Thursday evening.
Prior to the announcement of the measures, the Chief of Police asked the Limassol and Paphos departments to prepare a specific implementation plan for the two lockdowns – something that never took place before.
The two departments have prepared their own plan of action which covers all entries and exits of the two coastal cities as well as highways – old and new.
Blocks will be set up in various spots in order to limit any unnecessary movement to and from Limassol and Paphos.
At the same time, dozens of police officers are recruited not only from the two districts but also from elsewhere to man these blocks.
Over 200 police officers will be on duty in these two cities, while dozens more area tasked to ensure the new measures all across Cyprus are enforced.
