ATHENS — The percentage of people infected by the novel coronavirus in Greece remains around 3 percent, professor Gkikas Magiorkinis of the Health Ministry's special committee said on Tuesday, during the twice-weekly live briefing on the pandemic's development.
He added that the number of intubated patients remains high, over 90, while at least 5 patients die of the virus each day.
Attica Region – the country's most populated region which accounts for nearly half of all national cases – has shown it is stabizing in the last two weeks, Magiorkinis said, but warned that it is too early for definite conclusions.
He added that the size of a city or village with active cases is a determinant factor in contagion rates. "We see the effects of restriction measures faster in towns and villages than in cities," he observed, concluding that the higher the population number, the stricter the observation of measures should be.
