The inhabitants of Kosi were never very numerous. It is a small village that has always had relatively few inhabitants and most of them were Turkish Cypriots. In particular, Kosi in 1946 had 151 inhabitants, in 1960 it numbered 167. After the exchange of populations and the intercommunal disorder the Turkish Cypriot inhabitants of the village moved to the occupied territories of Cyprus by the Turkish troops, so in 1982 there were only 7 inhabitants remaining. Since 1992 and in all other inventories, the village remains abandoned until today.
