The Greece Ministry of Health reported Friday the fourth case of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus in the country.
The case is a 36-year-old Greek woman who recently traveled to an affected area of Italy. Upon her return, she developed mild symptoms. She is in good health and remains in isolation in FGN, Attica Region.
The incident was diagnosed at the Laboratory of Microbiology of the Nursing School of Nursing.
Ministry of Health spokesman, Professor Sotiris Tsiodras said patient contacts are being tracked and school units in the Attica Region have been prevented.
Further, with the recommendation of a special group of experts and with the agreement of the Minister of Education, the measure of temporary suspension of organized educational trips is extended to all overseas trips, due to the exceptional difficulty in tracking contacts, confirmed cases abroad.
Although most cases worldwide involve people with a specific epidemiological exposure history or trip to the area, the epidemic is spreading to more and more countries and there are more and more community-transmitted phenomena where there is no clear source of origin.
There is no evidence of continued transmission of the virus to the community in Greece.
