ATHENS — Greece reported 438 new confirmed novel coronavirus infections on Monday, with 62 people linked to known clusters and 42 detected at the country's entry points.

A total of 85 people are intubated. Their median age is 66 years, 94.1 pct have an underlying condition or are aged 70 or more, and 26 of them are women.
