GREECE: More than half of Covid patients in ICU are fully vaccinated confirmed the National Organisation for Public Health (EODY) reported on Monday, June 20.

The Public Health Organisation confirmed that 54 per cent of patients in intensive care were considered to be fully vaccinated against Covid.

They established that as of Monday there were 97 Covid patients on ventilators of which 45 (or 46 per cent) are classed as unvaccinated, while 92 per cent have an underlying health condition and/or are over the age of 70.

Symptoms of coronavirus (Covid-19) in adults can include:

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a headache
  • a sore throat
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea
  • feeling sick or being sick

The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu.

Governments are asking people to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if they have symptoms of COVID-19 and either: you have a high temperature or you do not feel well enough to go to work or do their normal activities.
