Cyprus has successfully tested over 12% of its total population for the novel coronavirus.
Health minister Constantinos Ioannou recently revealed to the House health committee that the island nation is now the sole country in all of the European Union to achieve this status.
He further added that Cyprus will continue its contact tracing to further test people for the deadly pandemic-causing virus.
Minister Ioannou went on to explain how over €6.7m has been spent thus far over testing, and that the expectations are for prices to go down further.
Tests in Cyprus currently cost €65, only second to Romania’s €63 – which is the cheapest in the European Union.
