On Tuesday, it was announced by the authorities that 399 new cases of Covid-19 were diagnosed in Greece, and three deaths with the virus were recorded. A total of 87 patients are currently intubated around the country.
Of the new cases, 55 are thought to be connected to known outbreaks, and just 33 were discovered during testing at Greece’s borders.
Cases recorded in the region of Attica, where Athens is located, number 213, over half of the new cases.
In total, there have been 20,541 cases of the coronavirus in Greece since the start of the pandemic. Cases associated with travel outside of Greece now number 3,122, and 8,385 are thought to have originated from contact with a confirmed case.
The number of patients — now 87, up from yesterday’s 83 — who are currently intubated has caused unease among those concerned with the amount of available beds in Greece’s intensive care units.
The median age of these patients is 67, and just over 89% of them are either over the age of 70 or have preexisting conditions. Only 24 of the intubated patients are women.
As of Tuesday, 229 patients with the virus have been released from intensive care.
Covid-19 is thought to have caused the deaths of 420 people in Greece. The median age of those who have passed away with the virus is 78, and 96.4% of them were over the age of 70 or had underlying health problems.
