An extraordinary meeting will be held today at the Maximus Mansion on the subject of coronavirus, following the latest developments in Italy where three people have already died.

At a meeting held at the Ministry of Health on Sunday, it was decided not to take any additional measures, but to place all the emphasis on raising awareness and informing citizens and visitors, as well as on the readiness of health authorities.

Scientists believe that there is no need for quarantine or epidemiological surveillance for the Greek students who are traveling to Italy these days, as they have not visited the affected areas.

Their repatriation has already begun, and on the orders of Education Minister Niki Kerameos, all educational trips planned to Italy in the near future, are temporarily suspended.
