COVID-19 Not Going Away in Greece Yet, Cases, Death Toll Climbs

ATHENS – While much of life in Greece seems almost normal with the end of a lockdown aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19, officials said there were another 19 cases on June 20 and another death.

That brought the number of cases to 3,254 with 190 deaths, the media age of cases at 48 and of deaths at 76, with underlying conditions a major catalyst making the virus more deadly during the pandemic that’s hanging on.

Nine patients were still on ventilators, authorities said, the ongoing cases a reminder that while the country is trying to recover and tourists now arriving that the virus is resistant and lingering.

While it hasn’t gone away yet, Greece ranks 90th in the world in the number of cases, a far better record that most countries, with an early lockdown imposed by Prime Minister and New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis on the advice of a scientific and medical team lauded for the relative success there.
