SERRES, Greece — Six students at the School of Physical Education and Sports Science (TEFAA), a department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Serres, have been diagnosed with novel coronavirus, the university announced on Monday.

The distortion of events, if it serves any purpose, that most certainly is not providing information and the protection of public health," it said.
