Greece: 2,422 coronavirus cases, 37 deaths, 364 intubations; distribution

Greece’s health authorities announced on Wednesday 2,422 new coronavirus cases and 37 deaths in the past 24 hours.  The number of intubated Covid-patients in hospital Intensive Care Units decreased further to 364.

According to Hospital Workers Union (POEDIN), internal investigation has been launched against a doctor at the mental health facility Dromokaitio in Athens for having issued seven fake positive Covid-19 tests. He first issued one for himself end of July, however, his PCR test for confirmation turned negative. In August he issued another 7 fake illness tests for people unknown to the hospital. following these positive results, dozens of tests were carried to medical and nursing staff and hospital patients to contain the spread of the virus, as the hospital management believed.

The doctor has apparently issued the fake results for him and some others who wanted to avoid vaccination or risk work suspension that was to go into force on Sept 1.

Media report of the possibility of mini lockdown in four regions in northern Greece due to increasing infections. These are Kavala, Pella, Pieria, Imathia.
