Greece records 1,070 new coronavirus cases, 25 more deaths

For third consecutive day, new coronavirus cases in Greece remain at four-digit level . Authorities announced on Thursday, 1,070 new cases in the last 24 hours and another 25 deaths. The number of Covid-19 patients intubated in hospitals across the country stands at 249, three more than a day earlier.

Death toll has reached 5,903 and the total cases stand at 160,935.

health experts have sounded alarm, committees and subcommittees advising the government have been meeting in the last two days, evaluating data and working out a list with new measures.

While there is talks for a 3-week-long “hard lockdown” like in March 2020 throughout the country, the government does not consider such a measure that will most likely lead businesses to close down for ever.

However, the situation in Attica is of high concern with several epidemiologists to propose extension of the curfew already at 6 p.m.

According to the latest scenario, the curfew 6 pm-5 am could be imposed on the weekend and not during the working days in order to avoid crowding and congestion of people rushing early to their homes in a region that is home to over 4 million people.

The government reportedly consider to keep the click away and click in shop for shopping and everything will be announced tomorrow, Friday, February 5, 2021.
