“The Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics informed the Health Ministry that the results in all tests of the coronavirus-suspected patient proved to be negative,” the announcement said.

“Despite the negative results, the patient will remain in hospital for 14 days for a follow-up, in accordance with the protocol and guidelines of the World Health Organization and the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC),” it added.

The woman suspected of being infected arrived in Cyprus on a private jet, along with three other passengers.
