Paphos doctor Panayiotis Papakyriakou, who worked for years at Paphos Hospital and is now registered with GHS as a private doctor, announced via his social media account that he has been found positive to the virus which he contracted from his nurse wife also found positive from contact with the British patient treated in the hospital’s ICU.
