The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have reached Cyprus in March 2020. The released data from Cyprus government includes the cases in Akrotiri and Dhekelia, a British Overseas Territory, but not the cases in Northern Cyprus since the region is under Turkish military occupation.

Timeline

  • On 9 March 2020, Cyprus confirmed its first two cases of coronavirus: a 25-year-old man from Limassol who had returned from Italy and a 64-year-old health professional from Nicosia who had returned from the United Kingdom.[1]
  • On 11 March, Cyprus confirmed four more cases of COVID-19: two Greek Cypriots who returned from the UK the day before and one taxi driver from Paphos, whose grandson was also hospitalised.[2] All three men were taken to Famagusta General Hospital. The fourth case was in self-isolation at home.
  • On 12 March, four new cases were confirmed: a person who had travelled to the United Kingdom and contacted the authorities after developing symptoms,[3] a person who had returned from Italy, a person with symptoms after returning from Greece, and an individual returning from Germany with no symptoms.
  • On 13 March, eleven new cases were confirmed.[4] President Nicos Anastasiades, in a special appearance, announced the closing of all borders except for nationals for 15 days from 15 March.[5]
  • On 21 March, the first death was confirmed.[6]
