As Cyprus has detected its first five cases of the Omicron variant of Covid-19, the Health Minister on Monday is to table proposals before Cabinet for new stricter restrictive measures to be approved.
Insiders told Philenews the proposals go as far as to totally ban unvaccinated people even from weddings and christenings.
And all this when all unvaccinated adults will not be able to enter indoor or outdoor stadiums, theatres, cinemas entertainment venues, nightclubs and restaurants as of Wednesday.
It is expected that the proposed measures should exclude minors between 12-17 years old for objective reasons. Even though the proposal can also be considered as a relaxation of a previous decision.
The reason behind it is because several are the cases of divorced or not parents who do not agree with each other over the vaccination of their children.
Cyprus detected its first three cases of the Omicron variant on Friday.
These were isolated in coastal Limassol following specialised tests by Cyprus‘s Institute of Neurology and Genetics.
The individuals had recently travelled from abroad.
