Greek Tourism Minister Haris Theocharis tried to appease the public and UK authorities over the spread of the coronavirus in Greece on Wednesday, telling BBC Radio the government is doing everything possible to keep the country an attractive destination with a low rate of contagion.”We are taking specific, targeted mesures and actions where we see specific concentrations of cases – mesures and actions that have been successful and have been working in the past few days,” Theocharis told Radio 4’s “Today” program.

He then noted that coronavirus cases in Greece remained well below the EU average in proportional terms and the UK threshold of 20 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per week, above which UK authorities are imposing restrictions.The Greek minister further noted that health authorities were introducing targeted measures in areas with the highest concentration of cases while ensuring full follow-up.
