For regions at the two highest levels 4 and 5, public health interventions are provided at the regional or municipality level:

1. Contact and detailed information of local authorities about the specific epidemiological characteristics of the area.
2. Activation of the dedicated EODY / civil protection task force to:

strengthening sampling control for SARS-CoV-2; conducting intensive and ongoing events; increase the number of vaccinations on a priority basis.

Greece has seen a steady rise in coronavirus infections, deaths and hospitalizations since mid-October, breaking one record after another since October 30.

The so-called “fourth wave of the pandemic” is putting tremendous pressure on the country’s public hospitals, with coronavirus patients being intubated even outside intensive care units.
