No plans to ease or tighten lockdown measures
There are no plans on relaxing or tightening COVID-19 restrictions over the coming weeks, with the government delaying any decisions days before Cypriots celebrate Orthodox Easter.
President Nicos Anastasiades on Wednesday, on the occasion of World Heath Day, said any decisions will be taken by cabinet on 24 April.
Earlier Wednesday Anastasiades met scientists advising the government on the coronavirus outbreak.
“For the moment, epidemiologists are not voicing very serious concerns, but this does not mean that we are not going to monitor the situation on a daily basis.
“What we are interested in, is to see there is at least a stabilisation when it comes to hospital patient admissions, in order for the health system to be able to cope,” Anastasiades told reporters.
