New day, new record: 8,613 coronavirus cases; distribution across Greece

Another day, another record of coronavirus infections: Greece’s health authorities announced on Tuesday 8,613 new coronavirus cases.  The number of Covid-related deaths recorded in past 24 hours is 46. The number of intubated Covid-patients in hospitals has increased further to 486.

It should be noted that infections are normally higher on Tuesday, as confirmed cases from weekend are being added and a record number of Rapid tests have been registered. This, however, does not change the fact that infections have been constantly increasing in the last few weeks and especially in the last 10 days.

7-day rolling average


Greek health experts attribute the increase to an “aggressive” transmission of the virus Delta variant triggering the 4th wave, relaxation of protection measures, the high rate of unvaccinated citizens (some 38%-39%) but also to immunity decrease of those vaccinated more than 5-6 months ago.

The pandemic seems out of control in the country and it puts the public health system under immense pressure. Doctors from the public hospital in Volos, central Greece said on Tuesday that “there is one doctor for 120 Covid-patients” and that the hospital deals with the pandemic without a pulmonogist.

  1. The infection map is now useless. With virtually the whole of Greece over 150 cases per 100,000 population in a 14 day period it conveys no information at all about where infections are better or worse, which is its purpose. They need to re-scale it.
