October 19, 2020

THESSALONIKI — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is to have a teleconference later on Monday with the governor of Central Macedonia Apostolos Tzitzikostas and the mayor of Thessaloniki, Konstantinos Zervas, to discuss the rising epidemiological burden in their area and the implementation of health safety rules.

The rising coronavirus infection rates in the city were noted during a meeting chaired by the prime minister earlier on Monday morning, in which the epidemiological data throughout the country was examined.

During the meeting, Greece's expert on the pandemic Professor Sotiris Tsiodras presented the number of cases and the patients in hospitals, as well as the statistics on the transmission rate of the virus in each area. Based on these, in addition to the assessment of the pandemic's course in areas that are already in an increased surveillance zone, it was found – according to government sources – that some rising trends can be observed in the area of Thessaloniki.
