The issue of stopping the crossings may come to the fore if the cases on the Greek Cypriot side reach 500-600, said the “Minister of Health”, Unal Ustel.
But they report t / c media, speaking on a TV show today, Mr. Ustel said that out of the 70 cases on the e / k side, now 430 are recorded and if they reach 500-600 then they will have to change category in the “e / k administration »- as he calls the area controlled by KD – and enter the red. “Then there will be a problem and that is why the issue of stopping the crossings may come to the fore.”

Mr. Ustel claimed that the increase in cases in “southern Cyprus” is due to the fact that it was opened for tourism without tests and without adequate control.
The “health minister” referred to the vaccinations in the occupied territories, saying that an average of 5,000 vaccinations are given daily. A total of 209,021 doses of vaccine were administered in the occupied territories, he said, adding that to date Turkey has sent 350,000 doses of Sinovac to the pseudo-state and will send another 150,000 doses. The age of those who are vaccinated has dropped to 30 years, he noted, while the vaccination of workers in the tourism sector and education is almost complete.
They are working hard, he continued, to achieve the goal of 70% in the vaccinated population and add that the vaccines from “southern Cyprus” – in his words – are from the EU, that is their interlocutor.
