Two new cases of corona virus were detected on Monday in breakaway north Cyprus, out of 1,391 tests carried out.
The total number of cases in the Turkish-held areas has now reached 135, according to Philenews.
Monday’s two reported cases both concerned travellers who arrived for holidays. One of the two was staying at a hotel in Kyrenia.
Shortly after he was informed that he was tested positive and that he had to re-take the test, he fled on board a ship heading for Turkey. He is wanted by police.
The second case concerns a tourist who arrived there a week ago and whose test at the time was negative.
He then started having symptoms, visited a doctor and after the test was carried out again it came back as positive. He is now hospitalised.
