Characteristic was the position of the professor of Microbiology Athanasios Tsakris, who yesterday appeared confident of extending the lockdown. Mr.. Tsakris argued, including, that in the coming days a universal lockdown is likely to be decided - by March standards- for Thessaloniki and Northern Greece, where new infections remain high.
