Refusing COVID-19 Test, Woman Attacks Cyprus Airport Officer

July 27, 2020

PAPHOS, Cyprus – Cypriot police said a Greek-Cypriot woman selected for random testing for COVID-19 after arriving at the Paphos international airport assaulted an airport official so fiercely the victim suffered bruises and cuts on her arm.

Despite that, the assailant – who was not identified – was not arrested nor was it reported whether she was tested, especially after the assault, with Kathimerini Cyprus reporting she was charged with assault. 

Police said the woman refused to take the test after being selected randomly and that she was traveling with her husband and child and vehemently protested being told she would have to comply.

Police confirmed that the passenger, who arrived on a flight from the Greek island of Mykonos, was asked to take a test based on a random selection formula applied on arriving passengers after entering the terminal, but she didn't.
