Coronavirus: Cyprus to pay holiday costs of infected tourists

Cyprus has pledged to cover the holiday costs of anyone who tests positive for the virus after travelling there.

In a letter made public on Wednesday, the 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, BBC reported.

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