Along with Thursday's announcement of the dead, intubated and new cases in Greece, αλλά και για την γεωγραφική κατανομή τους ανά περιφερειακή ενότητα, από το Εθνικό Δίκτυο Γονιδιωματικής Επιτήρησης για τις μεταλλάξεις του SARS-CoV-2 έγινε γνωστό ότι:
“Completed by National SARS-CoV-2 Genomic Surveillance Network, operating under the coordination of EODY, the genomic analysis in 891 samples selected at random or targeted and relevant to the period 02 July 2021 to 31 July 2021. From the control of 891 samples, emerged as a whole 823 samples with strains of special interest (Variants Of Concern – YOU), 24 samples with strains under monitoring (Variants Under Monitoring) and 3 samples with strain of interest (Variant of Interest – BUTTER).
Of the 823 samples with strains of special interest, the 707 concern the Delta executive, 90 concern Alpha, 24 concern Beta and 2 concerning Gamma. Of the 24 samples with monitored strains, all relate to strain B.1.1.318 (Variant E484K). Of the 3 samples with strain of interest, all relate to B.1.621 (BUTTER). In addition, they were detected, 1 strain B.1.629, 1 strain B.1.575 and 1 strain B.1.1 (Variant E484K) (Panel 3).
Since the launch of the National Network of Genomic Surveillance of the SARS-CoV-2 virus until today, they have been tested in the territory as a whole. 26.555 samples from domestic cases. From them 22.839 come from a random selection of samples, 2.998 come from targeted sampling or sampling and for 718 samples the selection method is not available.
Between 22.839 randomly selected samples in the territory, the four most common stakes of special interest or under surveillance that have been isolated are Alpha, with percentage 67,21%, followed by Delta with a percentage 12,14%, B.1.1.318 (Variant E484K) with percentage 10,04% and Beta with a percentage 1,24% (Panel 4).
From 2.998 samples taken or selected in a targeted manner, they have been found 2.835 officers of special interest or under supervision. From these samples, 43,70% concern B.1.1.318 (Variant E484K), 28,12% in the Delta, 15,81% at Alpha, 6,70% in Beta, 0,13% in C.36 and 0,10% in Gamma.
In addition, have been isolated altogether 238 strains of special interest or under surveillance or interest from samples of imported cases, of which 113 concern Alpha, 107 in the Delta, 6 in Beta, 4 in B.1.1.318 (Variant E484K), 4 at B.1.621 (BUTTER), 1 in Eta, 1 at C.36, 1 in Kappa and 1 in B.1.623.
Regarding the executives of interest who need immediate control measures currently in the country, the geographical distribution by Regional Unit is presented in Table 5.”
