Greek Civil Protection and Digital Governance introduced an interactive tool, a Covid-19 Map, where citizens can check the level of alert due to coronavirus in their area and see if and what kind of restrictions and rules are being implemented.

The determination of the level of risk in each area depends on the increasing or decreasing trend of epidemiological variables, such as the number of cases per 100 thousand inhabitants, the indicators of completeness of the Health system (eg simple beds used and beds of Intensive Care Units) and epidemiological situation, as reflected by the trace data,” a statement posted in the relevant website says.
The geographical reference and implementation of the measures is carried out at the level of the regional unit, unless exceptional circumstances arise in accordance with the protocols of the Ministry of Health and Civil Protection that justify exceptions at the local level within the regional unit.
The four levels are marked with the colors:
Green Level 1 = Readiness
Yellow Level 2 = Surveillance
Orange Level 3 = Increased Surveillance
Red Level 4 = Increased Danger
Note: Attica and Athens, the Greek capital, are featured in general and in four sections North, South, East and West.

a) by selecting the regional unit from the relevant menu
