Greece COVID-19 Coronavirus Cases 2,517, Four Deaths Bring Toll to 134

ATHENS – There were four more deaths on April 26 from the COVID-19 Coronavirus in Greece, raising the number to 134 and 11 cases bringing the total to 2,517, still among the lowest numbers in countries hardest bit by the dreaded disease.

The number of people in in intensive care units around the country continued to decline, and is now 46 after 64 left, with health authorities saying that 64,608 tests had been conducted.

A lockdown on March 23 that closed non-essential businesses and required people allowed out on permissible missions to stay at least 1.5 meters (4.92 feet) apart from each other was credited with holding down the effect of the virus, unlike some other countries in the European Union such as Italy,  France, Spain and the European Union where it was devastating after their leaders were slow to impose restrictions.
