November 10 According to a report from the Greek “Greece Times” on the 10th, Greece entered a three-week full lockdown on the 7th. The police across Greece have stepped up inspections of compliance with restrictions and imposed fines on those who violate the prohibition. Greek Prime Minister Mizotakis urged the people to strictly abide by various prevention and control measures to control the pandemic.
On November 7, local time, in Athens, Greece, a cat strolled on an empty commercial street. In order to contain the Coronavirus pandemic, from 6 am local time on the 7th, Greece has entered a three-week lockdown. Including retail stores, restaurants, coffee shops and other enterprises, will suspend business during the blockade.
According to reports, on the 9th local time, the National Public Health Organization of Greece (EODY) announced that in the past 24 hours, Greece had added 1,490 confirmed cases of Coronavirus, of which 42 were imported. At present, a total of 58188 cases have been confirmed nationwide. There were 41 new deaths that day, and a total of 825 deaths.
Greece has entered a three-week complete lockdown on November 7. During this period, the public must abide by a series of restrictions, including the ban on gathering activities. However, in the early morning of the 9th, the Athens police found that about 30 people were holding a party in a small hotel. The police immediately issued multiple fines to the party organizer.
In order to urge the public to do a good job of prevention and control, the Greek national police has increased inspections of compliance with restrictions. Only on the first day of the official entry into force of the blockade order on the 7th, the police conducted a total of 55,724 inspections and fined 585 people who did not carry travel certificates and 698 people who did not wear masks.
The Greek government has stated that the second total blockade is to avoid the result of “overwhelming” the public health and medical system. Contanito, a professor at the University of Athens School of Medicine, warned that the next few days will be “critical” for the public healthcare system.
Contani said: “Despite the daily pressure of medical staff, they are still fighting at the forefront of the fight against the pandemic. I hope that through the opening of a series of restrictive measures, I will see the number of patients in the intensive care unit and hospital admissions in 10 days. The rate has dropped.”
In order to ease the pressure on hospitals, sources from the Greek Ministry of Health said that the government has plans to further requisition military hospitals and private hospitals, and increase the number of beds in intensive care units. Prior to this, the government had shipped a batch of ventilators and monitors to the north, and some closed hospitals would reopen.
Greek Prime Minister Mizotakis recently expressed the hope that people will strictly abide by various prevention and control measures. He also added that as the pandemic will continue, the public will have to prepare for a different Christmas in 2020.
