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.
