Combination of reasons led to recent surge in COVID cases, Head of scientific committee tells CNA

The recent surge in COVID cases is due to a combination of reasons and it is hard to assess at the moment the duration of the outbreak or its extent, the Head of the scientific committee Constantinos Tsioutis told the Cyprus News Agency. The committee will discuss the developments with President Nicos Anastasiades on Monday afternoon.

Professor Tsioutis told the CNA that the outbreak is because of the lifting of the restrictions which allow for a high number of contacts among citizens, the complacency and the impression that the pandemic is over and also the fatigue following a year and a half living with the pandemic and having gone through three lockdowns.
