50 more coronavirus cases; no new deaths


Greek authorities announced 50 new cases of coronavirus and no fatalities in the past 24 hours Thursday.

Twenty-four of the 50 cases involved tourists tested upon arrival.

Greece’s total number of confirmed coronavirus cases is now 3,672, with 193 dead.

Nine patients remain intubated in intensive care units while 122 have left ICU.

Authorities have conducted a total of 358,725 tests.

Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas said authorities were “determined to protect the majority from the frivolous few.” He said the government may announce new restrictions, if needed, on Monday.

Petsas said authorities were focused on the rising number of cases in nearby Balkan countries and tourists who traveled to Greece over the land border with Bulgaria. [Kathimerini,AP]
