Greece updates Covid-map, downgrades several areas from “deep red” to “red”

Greece’s Civil Protection updated the Covid-map and placed new areas in “very high risk” category, i.e. “deep red”. At the same time, it downgraded several regional units and municipalities from “deep red” to “red.”

At the Live Briefing on Wednesday, Head of Civil Protections Nikos Hardalias also warned the residents of several areas, in particular on specific islands, that they should stick with the protection measures against the pandemic.

New areas in “deep red”

Municipality of Xanthi, where the active cases have increased to 157 from 116 where it was on April 17 (increase of 35.34%)

Municipality of Iasmos of the Regional Unit of Rodopi, where the active cases have increased to 24 from 3 that were on April 17, ie they have increased 8-fold.

Areas from “deep red” to “red”

Regional Units:

Zakynthos: 43 active cases when at the maximum of the epidemiological curve it was 112 (decrease by 61.61%)

Argolida: 134 active cases when at the maximum of the epidemiological curve it had 224 (-40.18%)

Kos: 51 active cases from 115 at the maximum of the epidemiological curve (-55.65%).

Hardalias noted that in the last 7 days there has been a decrease in the viral load to 46 of the total 74 Regional Units of the country, including the Attica Region, as well as the Regional Units of Thessaloniki, Kozani and Achaia.

At the same time, 9 Regional Units remain stable, while 19 show an increase of more than 5%, ie these areas that still need special attention are:

the Regional Units of Milos, Florina, Lesvos, Paros, Thira, Thesprotia, Ioannina, Arta, Kalymnos, Imathia, Fthiotida, Kefallinia, Evia, Xanthi, Preveza, Chania, Rethymno, Drama and Trikala.

Especially for these areas, a strong recommendation is for strict observance of the protection measures.

The remaining regional units and municipalities maintain the same status.
