Four checkpoints on the Green Line will close for seven days as part of Greek Cypriot officials’ increased measures to prepare for a possible coronavirus outbreak.

Greek Cypriot media announced on Friday that the decision to suspend the operation of the checkpoints at Lokmaci (Ledra Street), Bostanci (Astromeritis) , Lefke (Lefka) and Derinya (Dherynia) for seven days was taken at a special meeting.

“This is a temporary measure and the aim is to protect both communities,” the Greek Cypriot Health Minister said, adding that the UN has been informed while Greek Cypriot leader Anastasiades has spoken with President Mustafa Akıncı.

Greek Cypriot Minister Ioannou said that this will allow more effective checks at the Ayios Dhometios (Kermiya) and Ledra Palace checkpoints where nursing staff will be sent from tomorrow morning to boost personnel there as they screen people crossing the Green Line.

Greek Cypriot media reports also underlined that the UN and the British Bases have been informed about the decision and the British Bases will be implementing the same protocols at Mağusa (Strovilia) checkpoint.
