Greece is among the top ten countries of very serious concern, according to the ECDC’s weekly report, which provides an overview of the epidemiological situation in connection with the pandemic. The report presents data for the 44th week (which ended on Sunday 7 November 2021).
Along with our country in a tragic situation are: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland and Slovenia, and 13 countries (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Norway, Romania and Slovakia) were categorized as “of serious concern”.
Three countries (Cyprus, France and Portugal) are of moderate (moderate) concern, and four countries (Italy, Malta, Spain and Sweden) are of low concern.
Morbidity, mortality and admissions to hospitals and intensive care units are expected to rise over the next two weeks, according to ECDC data released yesterday.
Case registration rates are currently highest in the under 50 age group, but are also growing rapidly among the older age groups.
The picture differs significantly between countries. Most Member States ΕΕ / ΕΟΧ are currently experiencing an increase in the number of cases and an overall epidemiological situation of serious or very serious concern. Countries with low vaccination rates have been hit hardest.
