The rise in cases in Thessaloniki is particularly concerning, authorities say.

Authorities may decide in the coming days to close primary schools in Thessaloniki if the gap between hospital admissions and discharges does not close significantly, ekathimerini.com reported.

On 11 November, the region of Thessaloniki reported 777 cases, Euractiv reported. Overall, Greece announced 2,752 new coronavirus cases.
