ATHENS – At least 300 people, 85-87 pct of them unvaccinated, have died of COVID in Macedonia and Thrace hospitals over the last fortnight, while a total of 1,167 Covid patients were being treated in ordinary hospital beds and ICUs on Monday.

Specifically, there were 529 patients being treated for Covid-19 in ordinary wards (74.9 pct unvaccinated) and 91 in ICUs (91.2 percent unvaccinated) in the 14 hospitals of the 3rd Regional Health Unit (Thessaloniki and Western Macedonia). In the 14 hopitals of the 4th Regional Health Unit (Thessaloniki, Eastern Macedonia and Thrace), there were another 479 patients (of which 74.3 pct were unvaccinated) in ordinary wards and 61 (89.7 percent unvaccinated) in ICUs.

As Health Minister Thanos Plevris said during his visit to Thessaloniki last Friday, most of the vaccinated Covid patients being treated in ICUs had been vaccinated more than six months ago.
