Coronavirus cases in Greece rise to 13,972 incl 2,000 reinfections

Coronavirus cases in Greece rose to 11,972 in the last 24 hours, health authorities announced on Friday. If one adds also the 2,000 reinfections that total number of confirmed infections is 13,972.

Covid-related deaths in the same period is 13, while the number of intubated Covid-patients in hospitals ICUs had decreased further to 88.

Meanwhile, health authorities remain bemused on Friday, a day after the National Vaccination Committee proposed the 4th dose of vaccine against Covid-19 for those aged 30-59.  Several Greek doctors and scientists mostly working abroad openly expressed their disagreement saying it only makes senses if it works also against Omicron 5.

The public stuns and is highly confused not knowing what to do.
