Unfortunately with the news of COVID cases on our Island, the guessing game as to how many COVID patients we have has started.
A report by Andreas Papadimitriou puts things into perspective.
All in all we have actually have a total of seven active cases.
From July 25th until today the confirmed cases in Zakynthos are:- 4 “locals” and 3 “imported” of which from the three, one is a Greek from Thessaloniki.
Three Zakynthian cases are the family from the wider area of Macheirados, which is in quarantine at home. You may recall, a mother and daughter. Confirmed on the 25th and the husband later on the 28th July. Restricted to his house is the day before yesterday is the most recently confirmed case. The employee of the department store Kaparelis.
In fact, the positively confirmed Polish woman and her family, who were the first to go to the quarantine hotel on July 19th, have returned to their country.
Therefore everything that is heard or written about 10, 15 or 20 confirmed cases of tourists or Zakynthos is completely non-existent.
Another important thing to note is that all cases are in quarantine and are not hospitalised.
