Greece has broken the barrier of 1,000 deaths attributed to COVID-19 and the macabre list growing daily.
After yesterday’s recording of the 38 dead that raised the total number of deaths from the deadly pandemic to 997, in the last hours another 13 deaths were recorded that ended up attributed to COVID-19.
Yesterday Greek health authorities announced 38 more registered deaths and 997 deaths in total in the country.
399 (40.0%) women and the rest men. The median age of our dying fellow citizens was 80 years and 96.9% had an underlying disease and/or age 70 years and over.
At the same time, Intensive Care Unit beds are filled with intubated patients struggling to stay afloat, and the National Health System is under more pressure than ever before, hitting red.
This is especially in Thessaloniki, Larissa, Pella and Imathia, where the hospitals have exceeded their limits and the medical staff is struggling with nails and teeth to carry out its work.
Meanwhile, Minks at two farms in northern Greece have been found to have COVID-19, as reported by Greek City Times.
