Cyprus health authorities are actively monitoring and managing cases of the Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) amidst the ongoing COVID19 pandemic. They are collaborating with European healthcare organizations, utilizing lessons from COVID19, and encouraging public adherence to health protocols and vaccination to tackle the rise in RSV cases.
There has been a notable surge in COVID19 cases among the elderly in Cyprus due to a lack of booster vaccine doses for individuals over 80. Health officials are urging the administration of booster shots and cautionary measures such as maskwearing and PCR testing before visiting nursing homes to protect this vulnerable demographic.
COVID19 cases are rising in Cyprus as the holidays approach, primarily due to increased social gatherings in enclosed spaces. Although hospital admissions are currently low, the medical services director emphasizes the need for vaccination and personal safety measures to prevent further transmission during the festive season.
Cyprus has seen a significant increase in Covid19 cases, with 995 new infections in just one week, mainly attributed to more indoor gatherings during the winter season. Health officials are urging the public to get vaccinated and follow preventive measures like handwashing and maskwearing, especially in crowded indoor spaces, to curb the spread of the virus.
