Turkish Cypriot authorities are closing two checkpoints at Strovilia/Akyar and Limnitis/Yeşilırma until March 22 as part of measures to contain the spread of coronavirus, CyBC reports.
It said the decision was taken at an urgent meeting in the North.
This leaves three open checkpoints at the Green Line — at Ayios Dhometios(Metehan), Ledra Palace and Pergamos(Beyarmudu).
South Cyprus authorities had temporarily suspended the operation of the checkpoints at Ledra Street, Dherynia, Astromeritis and Lefka some two weeks ago.
One person, a German tourist, has tested positive for the coronavirus in the North.
Six people have tested positive in the South.
CyBC said that a meeting in the North is continuing with additional measures expected to announce.
It noted that schools have already closed in the North while charter flights have stopped.
