Greek citizens returned from China in good health


Two Greek citizens, who returned from China earlier on Sunday, have been transferred to Sotiria Hospital. 

The two Greeks boarded, along with British and other European Union citizens, a specially chartered plane from the town of Wuhan in the Hubei province. They arrived in London and then the two Greeks boarded a military plane bound for Patrica Di Mare military air base in Rome.

A special health unit of the National Public Health Organization received them, following the special protocol.

They boarded a Greek military aircraft, which had flown to Rome for this purpose, and landed at the military airport of Elefsis.

“Although the two Greek citizens have no symptoms, they were transferred by specially trained personnel from the National Emergency Center to the General Hospital Sotiria, which is a Reference Hospital, and will be placed on voluntary isolation and medical supervision for 14 days,” the Health ministry said.
