Coronavirus: Pandemic “increases” in Greece – In the “red” five more areas, see the map

Coronavirus invades and changes in the epidemiological map were inevitable, after the 3,651 new cases of the last 24 hours , which were recorded in almost every corner of Greece.

This is proved by the inclusion of three Regional Units of the Peloponnese in the “red” epidemiological level of danger as well as two more areas from the west.

Specifically, in the fourth level “red” of the very increased risk were upgraded:  Arcadia, Achaia, Messinia, Zakynthos and Ioannina,  while in all other burdened “red” areas of northern Greece there was no improvement.

Coronavirus: How the epidemiological map emerges

The four-level epidemiological map corresponds to 4 colors (red, orange, yellow and green) based on epidemiological indicators used by the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The epidemiological map will be produced weekly at the level of the Regional Unit and especially for the islands at the level of the Municipality.

The purpose of the epidemiological map is to inform Greeks and visitors to our country, as well as to link preparedness levels with public health measures.

The map is updated on a weekly basis by the team of epidemiologists of the Committee of Experts of the Ministry of Health in collaboration with EODY and the Ministry of Civil Protection, taking into account the following epidemiological indicators:

• 7-day moving average cases per 100,000 inhabitants
• 14-Tame number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants
• Index positivity controls
• Weekly percentage change cases
• Number of active cases
• Age outbreaks distribution
• Weekly number of new hospitalizations per 100,000 inhabitants
• Weekly number of deaths per 100,000 inhabitants
• Vaccination coverage
rate • Active case reproduction rate (Rt)
• Health system completeness
• Contact tracking
analysis • Mutation analysis

The final configuration of the epidemiological map results after a combined evaluation of the above indicators.
