Cyprus will shut four checkpoints linking the two sides of the ethnically-split island for seven days as a precaution against the spread of coronovirus, according to Cypriot media APA reports citing Reuters.

Two media outlets quoted Cypriot Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou saying the closure would come into effect on Saturday, Feb. 29.

 

Thousands of people use the checkpoints on a daily basis. There are seven checkpoints in total, running along a United Nations controlled ‘green line’ carving the island into two.
