Over 200 people/students quarantined in north Cyprus

More than 200 people who arrived from abroad are currently in quarantine in north Cyprus as part of measures to curb the spread of coronavirus, it was reported on Thursday.

There are so far 33 confirmed cases in north Cyprus, 30 German tourists and three Turkish Cypriots. 

At the moment, more than 200 persons are in quarantine in a hotel in Ayios Epiktitos in Kyrenia where all travellers arriving to the north are taken.

The passengers are reportedly picked up right after they exit the planes and are taken by buses to the hotel for a 14-day quarantine.

Two Turkish Cypriot students who had arrived at the Larnaca and Paphos airports last Monday and who were placed in quarantine along with the rest of passengers in Troodos, were reportedly transferred to the north on Wednesday and were placed in quarantine in the same hotel. 

Students are expected to be repatriated from the UK, Germany, France and Spain.

Authorities announced on Wednesday that until April 1, only Turkish Cypriots will be allowed entry to the north be it by land, sea or air. Upon their arrival, they will have to spend 14 days in quarantine.
