There should be stricter lockdowns in Athens and Attica because people there think they are special and still continue to break the rules.
You might find the fact that Athens & Attica are the most densely populated areas contributes to the higher number of cases – not everyone thinks they’re ‘special’ or break the rules.
If some of the numbers of deaths being posted are the same as in the UK, you’ll find that a quarter of them are not actually caused by the actual Covid virus, but, they have been recorded as Covid deaths, but they have in fact had or had symptoms of Covid, but it was Not the whole cause of they’re Deaths!! And that is from The Office of Statistics in the UK!!!
Things are getting worse and tourism is about to start. Can’t wait for winter lockdown
Actually, every day since 6th April the figures have been slightly better than the same day the previous week. It is very slowly getting better.
It depends where you live. On Crete the number of infections are continuing to increase. The cases per 100,000 population in a 14 day period are now Rethymnon 323 (0), Heraklion 229 (5), Chania 181 (17) and Lasithi 113 (1). The figure in brackets is the minimum recorded in a 14 day period around the start of the year since when they have been increasing. Every so often you get a drop for a few days and then it continues upwards. Vaccinations will not have a significant effect on case numbers until well over half the population has been vaccinated and even then many controls will still be needed.
Yes, of course there is variation between regions, and if you live on Crete it probably isn’t much consolation that somewhere else it’s getting better.
The overall picture, though, is one of small improvements each day for the country as a whole, which means there will be improvements in other regions that cancel out the worsening situation on Crete. But, as I’ve said it’s very slow. It is quite promising that numbers have been improving every day for a week.
That’s the spirit, just lock everybody away forever & never let them travel again
