Greece records 1,001 new coronavirus cases, 9 deaths; geographic distribution

And all of a sudden, somehow “abruptly”, daily infections in Greece climbed to four-digit level on Saturday, when health authorities announced 1,001 new coronavirus cases. Recorded Covid-related deaths in the last 24 hours are 9 and while the number of intubated Covid-patients in hospitals Intensive Care Units stands at 177.

The increasing trend had already been registered since the start of the week, some local health experts blamed the Delta variant and its high transmissibility and/or the population mobility due to summer vacations.

Yet it should be noted that while the daily infections have been on the rise, the number of daily deaths and intubated Covid-patients has been decreasing.

According to some local experts, this has to do with the fact that the infected are not elderly but that the average age of infected is now 27 years old.

An increase of Covid-19 infections was recorded for the fifth consecutive week in Greece, with …


  1. gotta keep the fear hysteria going! too much power and money at stake to let go of this now.

    • Yeah. Tell that to the families of 12,731 people who’ve died of it in Greece, or of the 130,000 victims in the UK. Too much power and money …. what balderdash!

  2. While there is plenty of evidence that the Delta variant has much higher transmissibility and leads to rapid increases in case numbers there is some inconsistency in the governments reporting. Unless I have missed something the government have been reporting a high number of the Delta variant in Heraklion but have not reported any in Rethymnon yet the increase in case numbers is highest in Rethymnon. Using 14 day total per 100,000 population the figures in Rethymnon have more than doubled in a little over 1 week while in Heraklion they have only increases by about 50 %.

    • Well spotted. Of course, we don’t know whether the Rethymno cases are being sequenced for the variety of virus or are just being tested for covid without being more specific. If you don’t test for something you won’t find it.
