  Youth vaccination status announced

  On September 9, local time, George Georgantas, Deputy Minister of Digital Governance of Greece, introduced the new crown vaccination status of 12 to 17-year-old teenagers in the country in an interview with Skai TV.

  He said that the average daily number of vaccinations for this age group is 30,000, of which 20,000 are vaccinated for the first dose.

Up to now, 48,000 people aged 12 to 14 have been vaccinated, with an inoculation rate of 13%; 88,000 people aged 15 to 17 have also been vaccinated against the new crown vaccine, with an inoculation rate of 25%; in addition, 405,000 people have been vaccinated. Young people between the ages of 18 and 24 were vaccinated with the new crown vaccine, and the vaccination rate was 50%.

  Winter campus epidemic prevention will be more difficult

  Andreas Konstantopoulos, president of the Greek Society of Pediatrics and professor of pediatrics, said that the school’s epidemic prevention work will face huge challenges after the beginning of school.

Teachers and students on campus need to strictly abide by the requirements of epidemic prevention measures, including wearing masks, maintaining social distance, and opening windows for ventilation.

However, with the advent of autumn and winter, the temperature drops, and when doors and windows need to be closed for heat preservation, the risk of an outbreak will increase.

It is expected that starting from December, the situation on campus will be different, and the number of new crown infections among students will increase significantly.

  He pointed out that the vaccination rate of students is still low, and it is estimated that the new crown infection rate of the student population will increase by 20%-25% after school starts.

10% of children may develop severe illness.

From the outbreak to July 1 this year, a total of 230 children were diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia and required hospitalization for treatment.

Among them, two children with underlying diseases died due to ineffective treatment.

  Police vaccination rate is low

  Greek Deputy Interior Minister Stelios Petsas said on the 9th that the low rate of police vaccinated against the new crown is one of the main obstacles to the establishment of the country’s immunization wall.

He said: "This has greatly reduced the credibility and persuasiveness of the police to check compliance with epidemic prevention measures. It is imperative to increase the vaccination rate of public sector workers who have more contact with the public."

  According to local television reports, the current vaccination rate of the Greek police is only 60% to 62%.
