Greece reported on Monday 35 new coronavirus cases, with four of them being detected in the country's entry points, health authorities said.

No virus-related deaths were registered, according to The National Organization for Public Health (EODY).

Since the start of the outbreak, a total of 4,227 people -- 54.5% men -- have been infected with the novel virus in Greece. The death toll, meanwhile, stands at 202.

As many as 1,184 of the total cases are linked to foreign travel, EODY said.

Earlier this month, Greek health authorities expressed concerns as several infections have been confirmed among holiday-makers entering the country during the peak tourism season.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has warned the citizens that the danger of COVID-19 is not over yet.

“We dealt with the first wave of the pandemic, but the danger still looms large,” he said in a tweet on Monday.

The southeastern European country ended three-month-long virus restrictions in June.
