ATHENS (dpa-AFX) – The Greek health authority registered 21,657 new corona infections from Monday to Tuesday. That is more than twice as much as the day before and a new negative record since the beginning of the pandemic. So far, the number of new infections in the country with its around 11 million inhabitants was 3000 to 5000 cases every day.

The experts attribute the sudden increase to the Omikron variant, which is particularly common in Athens. The authorities registered a good half of the new infections on Tuesday in the metropolitan area, around 70 percent are omicrons, according to state television.

The Greek Minister of Health Thanos Plevris had already announced on Monday that the Corona measures due to Omikron would be tightened from January. Now the government reserves the right to act faster. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis wants to meet with the Corona crisis team on Wednesday, and the results of the meeting and possibly new measures will be announced at noon ./axa/DP/stw
