Cypriot President Tests Positive for COVID-19, Said Doing Well

NICOSIA – Cyprus’ President Nicos Anastasiades, 75, has tested positive for COVID-19, authorities said,  but had only mild symptons and his health was said to be well, according to government spokesman Marios Pelekanos.

Cyprus, after easing health restrictions in a bid to lure tourists to push an economic recovery – figures are at 75 percent of the record 2019 year before COVID hit early in 2020 – reimposed mask wearing indoors.

That came a month after ending the requirement but with more infections showing it led to a reversal of that policy but Anastasiades has

cleared his schedule, including commemorations of the 48th anniversary of Turkey’s invasion of Cyprus.
