New anti-record: 8,613 coronavirus cases in Greece

Another day – another record for infections: Greece’s health authorities announced 8,613 new cases of coronavirus on Tuesday. There have been 46 Covid-related deaths in the last 24 hours. The number of intubated Covid patients in hospitals has increased to 486.

It should be noted that the infection is usually higher on Tuesday as confirmed cases from the weekend are added and a record number of rapid tests recorded. This, however, does not change the fact that the infection has been steadily spreading over the past few weeks and especially over the past 10 days.

7-day average

Greek health experts attribute this increase to the “aggressive” transmission of the Delta virus variant causing the 4th wave, weakening of protective measures, a high level of unvaccinated citizens (about 38% -39%), as well as a decrease in immunity in vaccinated who have been vaccinated 5 -6 months ago.

The pandemic appears to have spiraled out of control in the country and is putting tremendous pressure on the health care system. Doctors from a public hospital in Volos, central Greece, said on Tuesday that “for 120 patients with Covid there is one doctor, ”and that the hospital is fighting the pandemic without a pulmonologist.
