Member of the Epidemiologists’ Committee Gkikas Majorkinis spoke of an average of 20,000-25,000 infections. He stressed that currently no measures are needed but left open this possibility if there are 250-300 Covid-patients in ICUs, Star TV reported.

Dimosthenis Sarigiannis, Professor of Environmental Engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, told Real FM, that he expects the summer wave of the pandemic to peak until mid-July and that infections will double on a weekly basis.

He said that he expected a de-escalation after that he stressed, however, that “the continuation in August will depend on the evolution of the pandemic in the countries of origin of the tourists who will arrive in Greece for holidays.”

Sarigiannis added that infections increase will bring a rapid increase of hospital admissions in normal Covid-wards and ICUs and estimated that “by the end of July or the beginning of August, 400 intubated patients will be treated in the ICUs.”
