Greece: 19,731 coronavirus cases, 119 deaths, 576 intubations; distribution

Greece’s health authorities announced on Monday 19,731 coronavirus cases and 119 deaths in past 24 hours. The number of intubated Covid-patients in hospitals stands at 576.

Much fewer tests were carried out due to the weekend.

In January alone a total of 2,710 citizens in Greece died of complications due to Covid-19. The number of deaths in the first month of 2022 exceeded also the record number since the pandemic start, in December 2021 with 2,633 deaths.

A total of 7,562 people has reportedly died of Covid-19 in Greece in the last three months.

since the start of the pandemic a total of 23,500 people have died in the country. 95% had underlying health issues and was over 70 years old. Average age of the dead was 78 years with a range 0.2 to 106 years old.

A logical question is: Why an average of 100 deaths per day when 88% of the population has received two doses of vaccination and 72% those over 60 also the booster shot.

The answer may be in the understaffed hospitals, at times the shortage of ICU beds and the intubation in normal wards as well as the fact that some people seek the hospitals when it’s too late?
