Greek health authorities will provide a weekly briefing on Covid-19 infections among children aged 4 and 17, government spokesman Yiannis Oikonomou told a press conference on Monday.

The data will be released by the National Organization for Public Health (EODY) every Wednesday, he said.

Oikonomou said the 4-17 age group has seen a precipitous rise in infections since March, adding that the conservative administration was making every possible effort to keep schools open amid the pandemic.
