Greek PM calls on all to stay the course in fight against coronavirus

ATHENS, April 2 (Reuters) – Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Thursday urged Greeks to continue to comply with lockdown measures and stay home to stem the spread of the coronavirus and avoid the tragedy seen in other countries.

Greece, which recorded its first coronavirus case at the end of February and took early measures to contain the outbreak, has reported 1,415 confirmed cases so far and 50 deaths.
