The number of confirmed coronavirus cases has reached 190, Greek health authorities announced on Friday and right away also more drastic measures: the closure of cafes, bars, restaurants, taverns, shopping malls, beauty centers, libraries. Exempted from the closure in the gastronomy sector are deliveries and take away.
