A statement issued by the medical association pointed out that younger patients without any preexisting medical conditions were in intensive care.
The KTTB warned that there is a similar trend in TRNC as in the rest of the world and there is a danger of exceeding the capacity of the health services.
Evaluating the lockdown for Kyrenia and Nicosia and partial curfews for other regions, the KTTB said, “It has been seen that the reduction in human traffic and contacts intended by these decisions did not meet sufficient conditions to reach the breaking point of social contamination. Both the sectors left open and the transition between regions are far from achieving the intended epidemic control. We should state with regret that it is necessary to go to a full closure immediately at the current stage ”.
