Greek Deputy Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Hardalias announced the release of an interactive, virtual map of Greece with information about current Covid-19 cases and anti-virus measures in each of the country’s 74 regions.
Regions are classified from one to four, depending on Covid-19’s impact on the area and what anti-virus measures are in place there.
An interactive map is available on an official website, where citizens can click each region to see which measures are in place as well as the current case numbers in the area.
The online map allows residents to input their postal code in order to see the measures and virus numbers on an even smaller scale.
This resource will make measures in each region more widely available to all, so that they can follow the appropriate anti-coronavirus rules put in place by the government.
Currently, Attica, where Athens is located, is at level three. On Friday, 161 of the total 391 cases in Greece were recorded in the region.
Friday’s record 98 intubated patients, the highest number since the start of the pandemic, has caused concern amongst health officials in the country.
Many fear pressure on Greece’s health system from high numbers of intubated patients could lead to decreased capacity in intensive care units.
Officials hope that more in-depth and accessible details regarding the virus will help citizens follow measures in place and protect themselves and others from Covid-19, and help reduce the case numbers in the country.
