COVID-19 cases spike in Greece with 52 in single day


Health authorities in Greece say there have been 97 new coronavirus cases since Thursday, of which 52 were in the last 24 hours, the biggest daily increase since April 23.

Thirty of the 97 cases involve travellers from aboard, authorites said.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases is now at 3,049 and there have also been two new fatalities, raising the total to 182.

“Anyone who thinks we have gotten rid of the coronavirus is wrong,” head of Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias warned and urged citizens to stay on alert and keep abiding by social distancing measures.

“The virus is in decline, but this doesn’t mean it’s gone.”

The spike in cases has led to the decision to resume daily briefings, or announcements, which had been abandoned in what now seems like a premature move.
