Covid-19: Infections on the rise in Greece; doctors urge masks return in hospitals

New infections cases of Covid-19 over the week of July 24-30 were up compared to …


  1. Highest daily cases since May 11th (3197).

    oh…..highest daily testing since May 1th (85,570)

  2. Are most of the new cases young people still?

  3. But the church says it’s a “matter of choice ” even as the government orders mandatory vaccines for certain sectors, suggests indoor dining for the vaccinated only, and launches an app. Jesus said “render to ceasar what belongs to ceasar and to god what belongs to God. ” Surely vaccines belong to ceasar? And more than one Saint have been doctors… where is the problem?

    The ” super religious” have caused all sorts of problems in Toronto as well. Apparently the rest of us don’t have enough faith!

  4. It isn’t uniform around the country because the Delta variant has become prevalent in some areas and not in others. It will spread to those other areas. Crete is an early hot spot for the Delta variant.

    If you use a 7 day moving average to smooth out these daily variations in testing then the whole of Crete was experiencing daily rates of around 90 case on 11 May and is now experiencing over 230 cases. If you use the 14 day total per 100,000 population, which is what the map is based on, Rethymnon has nearly three times the number of cases as the average for all Crete. These are massive differentials.

  5. These maps are totally confusing! Why do they paint locations light orange (50 to 149 cases) which only have
    1, 2 or 15 cases? For example – light orange – Chios has one case, Sporades 1, Kefalonia 2, Lesvos and Halkidiki 15 each……

    • The maps are based on the total number of cases in the previous 14 days, not the number of cases per day. That is not an unreasonable measurement since people are probably infectious for a period of somewhere around 14 days so it is a reasonable approximation of the number of people who are currently infectious.

      They are also scaled per 100,000 population. Scaling is necessary to understand the severity of the infections. If you said 1,000 people were infected in Attica it would be quite a small percentage of the population, e.g. around 0.02%. If you said 1,000 people were infected in my village it would mean virtually everybody. Clearly very different situations. In regions with small populations that can result in the number of actual cases being multiplied up and it can produce big distortions in areas with very small populations.
