Cyprus has revealed plans to cover the holiday costs of anyone who tests positive for coronavirus after travelling there, according to reports.
The BBC said that the country’s government said in a letter it would pay for accommodation, medicine and food for those affected, and their families.
Tourists "will only need to bear the cost of their airport transfer and repatriation flight", it said, as part of a range of measures aimed at drawing visitors back to Cyprus – which has not had many Covid-19 cases.
Cyprus plans to reopen its airports on 9 June to a number of countries that are seen to be low risk.
Authorities will update the list weekly. Deputy tourism minister Savvas Perdios reportedly said the UK and Russia will likely be allowed to travel to the island in July.
