Statistics in Greece with regards to COVID-19

As of 21 of September, we have 15.595 confirmed cases, 79 intubated patients and 344 casualties. The 96.8% of the victims belonged to the ''vulnerable population'' which includes people with underline diseases or above 70 years of age.

In early March, while infections and deaths from the Covid-19 corona virus were still very low, the Greek government imposed a lockdown on the country, closing all but essential businesses, and restricting travel to and within the country.

 

The swift and decisive imposition of these measures, and the fact that they were faithfully observed by the vast majority of Greek citizens, has seen the country emerge as one of the “success stories” of the pandemic, with one of the lowest infection and death rates in Europe.

In Thassos, 5 cases has been confirmed on 7 of July, all coming from asymptomatic tourists that have been tested on the borders. Four guests that found positive in COVID-19 continued their holidays on the quarantine hotel along with their families but without being able to explore the island. They remained for 14 days and their health condition were being checked. 1 case  requested to return to their country along with their family and his request was accepted.

The quarantine hotel is located in a quite and beautiful area in the middle of a forest distanced 3 km from Thassos Town. While it is not allowed to exit the hotel, guests can enjoy their time at the swimming pool and all the rest infrastructures it includes. All expenses are covered but the Greek state.

A new measure has been applied for the current period, in which all shops of sanitary interest are directed to close from 00.00 o'clock until 07.00 ο'clock.
