The numbers are a slightly better than Thursday’s record figures of 2,917 positive tests and 29 deaths, but are still alarming, especially in light of the limitations of the public health system.

The national health organisation said in its daily bulletin that 196 Greeks are being treated by intubation, with their median age being 66 years. 91.3 percent of intubated patients also have an underlying disease or are aged 70 years and older. 

In terms of the geography of the virus’ transmission, the northern port city of Thessaloniki continued to lead the chart, reporting 683 new cases on Thursday. It was followed by Attica with 492 cases.
