  1. In the past 4 weeks, Greece’s cases per 100,000 population in the previous 7 days have increased more than two and a half fold. And there has been no meaningful change in PCR or rapid testing compared to the 4 weeks before that.
    New record levels have been set for 11 of the past 13 days.
    Positivity of tests have risen throughout these 4 weeks (and before) and continue to do so.
    Unbelievably Greece is now rapidly chasing down the UK.
    During the same last 4 week period intubations have risen by almost 40%.
