A preventive examination for coronavirus was performed on Thursday, September 3rd, at the Unaccompanied Minors Structure "Nefeli 1" of the Kinoniko EKAV, located in Piraeus.

A group from the National Public Health Organisation attended the Structure, where it received samples from 36 unaccompanied minors as well as from the employees. All the tests were negative. The preventive examination was carried out with the aim of protecting the structure from any cases but also to avoid possible spread of the virus in the wider society.

Preventive tests to detect the virus have been also performed in the past and the re-examination was deemed necessary at this stage given the increase in cases in Attica. Besides, the organization supports the frequent examination through detection tests of antibodies and PCR tests, of all children and the staff of the structures, while at the same time the accommodation areas have been equipped with the appropriate equipment that is considered necessary for protection issues.
