  1. Greece is now at its highest cases per 100,000 population in the past 7 days since the start of the pandemic. Despite it being a Monday (always the lowest cases of the week due to weekend testing) today is the highest any day of cases for 2 months. Today’s daily deaths are the highest for 5 months.
