Drug exports only by Cyprus Health Minister's permission
CNA - Cyprus/NICOSIA 27/03/2020 15:05

Cyprus Health Minister Constantinos Ioannou has issued a decree prohibiting the export of any drugs for human use unless his written permission is granted.

The decree which was published on Friday in the Cyprus Government Gazette comes to effect immediately.

It is explained that the decree is issued because public health and the health care system constitute the responsibility of the Republic and that the aim is to contain the outbreak of the coronavirus COVID-19, to protect public health and to prevent the possibility of the health system collapsing by the virus spreading, taking into account the demands in human resources and logistical infrastructure which would be necessary if it were to rapidly spread and because it has become imperative to take further measures in addition to the ones already taken.
