What is the epidemiological picture of Kefalonia in the last week

Our Prefecture remained without new cases of Covid-19 disease from December 27 until yesterday, January 2, with the result that their total number is maintained at 69. Consequently and always according to the official data of the National Public Health Organization, the From the beginning of the pandemic until today, Cephalonia remains the second safest epidemiological region of the country, both in absolute numbers of cases and in proportion to its population.

In total, the confirmed cases of coronavirus in Greece now amount to 139,709. Unfortunately, 4,921 of our fellow citizens have ended up, ie 3.5% of the patients with a median age of 79 years, while in the Intensive Care Units there are 431 intubated patients, 42 less than last Saturday.

In particular, in Cephalonia, 69 cases have been officially confirmed, ranking in the penultimate position among the Prefectures of the country, just behind our neighboring Lefkada which also did not present new cases, with their number remaining at 50. In terms of cases per 100,000 inhabitants which as we have pointed out are the most indicative and critical element for the calculation of the epidemiological burden of an area, in the last place always remains the Prefecture of Lassithi with 142 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, with Cephalonia being ranked in the penultimate position with 177 or 1 per 566 Lefkada completes the top five with 211 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, Zakynthos with 231 and Evia with 239. On the contrary, the most epidemiologically burdened areas of Greece remain Pella with 3,028, Drama with 2,997, Thessaloniki with 2.640, Pieria with 2,571 and Kilkis with 2,521 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

The zero cases in Cephalonia practically mean that our viral load remained unchanged. On the contrary, at national level there was a burden of 0.6% with 1,257 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to 1,249 last week, with fewer tests due to the holidays. In total, however, the incidence rate on our island remains 7.1 times lower than the nationwide.

Finally, at the level of the Ionian Islands Region since the beginning of the pandemic in March until now, 337 cases per 100,000 inhabitants have been identified with a total of 700 patients of the disease, of which 487 or 69.4% in Corfu.

The week we are going through is particularly critical for our gradual return to normalcy, as from today, January 3, a new, stricter lockdown begins, so that the epidemiological picture is not burdened by the normal relaxation of the holidays. The ultimate goal is the reopening of schools of all levels on January 11 with the greatest possible security. Opsometha…
