Cyprus to pay holiday costs of infected tourists

Cyprus has pledged to cover the holiday costs of anyone who tests positive for corona virus after travelling there. Click here to read the full story.

In a letter made public on Wednesday this week, the Cypriot government said it would pay for accommodation, medicine and food for patients and their families.

Tourists "will only need to bear the cost of their airport transfer and repatriation flight".

It is part of a package of measures aimed at drawing visitors back to the island, which has reported few cases.

According to Johns Hopkins University data, the country has confirmed 939 infections and 17 deaths.

Tourism accounted for about 15% of the country's GDP last year, and so the government is straining to bring back travellers as soon as possible.
