  • The rate of coronavirus transmission in Greece has dropped to 0.2 from 0.5 a week earlier – well above the level of 1 indicating the need for restriction measures – the Greek government’s Covid-19 Observatory said in its weekly report on Thursday. The average rate of new cases over the past week was 16 a day compared to 22 the week before, while nationwide Greece had 1.51 infections per million of the population.
  • Greece’s good performance in containing the spread of the virus is also reflected in the data on testing, which show that just 0.5% of Covid-19 diagnostic tests that were conducted in the period from June 25 to July 2 came back positive, meaning one per 203 tests.
