The number of patients treated by intubation is 343 (64.9% men). Their median age is 67 years. 87.2% have an underlying disease and / or age 70 years and older. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 2,573 patients have been discharged from the ICU.

The admission of new Covid-19 patients to the hospitals of the territory is 75 (daily change + 13.64%). The average seven-day admission is 98 patients.

The new deaths of patients with COVID-19 are 22, while since the beginning of the epidemic a total of 12,465 deaths have been recorded. 95.2% had underlying disease and / or age 70 years and older.

Performing a test

In the last 24 hours 16,393 molecular tests and 34,187 rapid tests were performed. In total 46,251, the positivity is estimated at 1.65%.

What does the sewage show in regards to the epidemic?

During the week 7-13 June 2021, there were declining or stabilizing trends, compared to the week of May 31 to June 6, 2021, in the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 in the urban wastewater of 6 of the eleven areas controlled by the National Network Sewage Epidemiology of EODY.

Net downward changes were observed in Ioannina (-66%) and the Attica Region (-47%), while the reductions were marginal in Thessaloniki (-27%) and Xanthi (-19%). Marginal increases were observed in the viral load of urban wastewater in Volos (+ 14%) and Larissa (+ 20%). The measurements of the average concentration of the viral load of the urban wastewater in Heraklion and Chania showed an increase, while a decrease was recorded in Rethymno. However, these changes are not quantified due to large fluctuations and low viral load values. In Patras the viral load of urban wastewater was very low and below the limit of quantification of the method.

Below are more details about the results of the week 7-13 June 2021, by region:

Attica Region: In the last week, 7-13 / 6/21, in the Attica Region, the downward trend of the viral load continued, with a significant change (-47%) of the weekly average compared to the previous week, 31 / 5-6 / 6/21.

Thessaloniki: In the last week 7-13 / 6/21, in Thessaloniki there was a small reduction (-27%) in the viral load of urban wastewater, compared to the previous week, 31 / 5-6 / 6/21. In the last week the viral load in the city has generally moved at low levels with small fluctuations.

Larissa: In the last week, 7-13 / 6/21, the levels of viral load in Larissa remained consistently low, despite the marginal increase (+ 20%) observed.

Volos: In the last week, 7-13 / 6/21, the levels of viral load in Volos remained consistently low, without noticeable change (+ 14%).

Heraklion: During the period 24 / 5-6 / 6/21, in Heraklion, fluctuations in the values ​​of the viral load of urban wastewater were observed. Despite the fluctuations observed, the absolute values ​​of the viral load are still low compared to the maximum values ​​recorded in March (25 times lower than the maximum values ​​in March).

Chania: During the period 24/5 – 6/6/21, in Chania, fluctuations in the prices of the viral load of urban wastewater were observed. Despite the fluctuations observed, the absolute values ​​of the viral load are still low compared to the maximum values ​​recorded in March (10 times lower than the highest values ​​in March).

Rethymno: In the week 7-13 / 6/21, in Rethymno, a decrease in the viral load of urban wastewater was recorded. This decrease balanced the relative increase observed in the week 31 / 5-6 / 6/21. Despite the fluctuations, the absolute values ​​of the viral load remained low compared to the maximum values ​​recorded in March (10 times lower than the maximum values ​​in March).

Patras: In the last week, 7-13 / 6/21, the viral load in the urban wastewater of Patras remained very low and below the limit of quantification of the laboratory methods used.

Xanthi: In the last week, 7-13 / 6/2021, there was a marginal reduction (-19%) of viral load levels in the urban wastewater of Xanthi in relation to the week 31 / 5-6 / 6/2021. Viral load levels are consistently low.

Alexandroupolis: The results from the MEL Alexandroupolis during the week 7-13 / 6/21 are not evaluated quantitatively due to damage to the sampler.

Ioannina: In the last week, 7-13 / 6/2021, in Ioannina, the viral load of urban wastewater continued to decline (-66%) compared to the previous week, 31 / 5-6 / 6/2021. There were also measurements with undetectable viral load, ie with viral load below the quantification threshold of the method.
