A 25-year-old man from Serres, a city in northern Greece, has died of coronavirus, making him Greece’s youngest victim.

Theodore Pavlidis suffered from pre-existing medical conditions and had recently undergone open heart surgery.

According to media reports, he was initially treated at the General Hospital of Serres before he was transferred to Papanikolaou General Hospital in Thessaloniki, where he was intubated.

His friends and family remember the 25-year-old as a happy person, loved by everyone.

Over the weekend, Dimitrios Bellos, better known as Dj Decibel, lost his battle with Covid-19. He valiantly battled the deadly disease for about a month in intensive care.

Dimitrios was a devoted family man and is survived by his wife Ioanna, and their 2 beautiful little girls. His youngest daughter is just 40 days old.

ICU head fears Greece will experience third Covid-19 wave

The growing number of COVID-19 cases is putting a large Thessaloniki hospital under intense pressure.

Nikos Kapravelos, head of the ICUs at the George Papanikolaou General Hospital of Thessaloniki, fears Greece could be hit with a third wave in 2021.

“The situation is desperate, the ICUs are full,” Kapravelos told Skai TV.

Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis was visiting the hospital at the time.

“When Mr. Georgiadis opens up the economy, because you can’t do anything else, we won’t stop breathing, I’m afraid that the next wave (of the pandemic) will come in January or February,” he said.

“All ages are now stricken [by the virus],” Kapravelos added.
