The median age of confirmed coronavirus cases in Greece currently stands at 46 years, “which indicates how the virus spreads”, stressed Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias at Wednesday’s live briefing on the pandemic and the unfolding inoculation program, ANA reports.
Speaking alongside Pediatrics Professor Maria Tsolia, the minister said there has been a rise in new infections in the 35-54 age group over the last 15 days, before he underlined anew the significance of wearing face masks, keeping strict social distancing, and observing all safety measures.
The majority of new infections registered in the last 7 days (per 100,000 inhabitants) were detected in the regions of West Attica, Boeotia, Lesvos, Kalymnos, Rodopi, Argolis, and Chalkidiki, stressed the minister. Health authorities are focusing on the Attica region, due to its large geographical scale and the way the virus is dispersing there, he noted.
