PanARMENIAN.Net - Greece recorded its highest ever daily tally of Covid-19 cases on Sunday, August 9, according to CNN.

The country reported 203 new cases, most of which are in its two largest cities -- Athens and Thessaloniki. Twenty-two patients in Greece are intubated, up from 14 on Friday.

The Greek government is expected to announce new pandemic measures this week amid the rising numbers.

Greece had previously managed to keep its case count low by enforcing a strict and early lockdown.

The country reopened its borders to tourists from the European Union and a handful of other nations on July 1.

Greece has so far recorded 5,623 coronavirus cases and 212 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
