At the level of increased alarm (mini lockdown) Thessaloniki is expected to join, on the recommendation of the Committee of Epidemiologists, who had a meeting and studied the indicators in each region of the country. The decision for Larissa "locks", what measures will apply.
The cases in Thessaloniki, which seems to be at a disadvantage, continue to grow and only a few beds remain available in the intensive care unit (ICU) of hospitals in the area, as the pressure on hospitals from neighboring counties that are in the red is particularly high.
So, tomorrow Wednesday 29 In September, it is expected to be decided whether Thessaloniki will turn red, but also what other areas will follow it, with Larissa as the main "candidate".
The measures that apply to the areas that are in the "red" are:
- Traffic ban by 01:00 in the evening until 06:00 in the morning, with the exception of work reasons and serious health reasons.
- Ban on music around the clock in health and entertainment stores.
In general, the epidemiological burden in Northern Greece is a cause for concern, as vaccination coverage is low, while there are peculiarities in some areas, such as frequent visits from the Balkans.
According to information, the final decisions are expected to be made tomorrow on whether Thessaloniki will enter the red, with the decision seeming to "lock" for Larissa.
