53 people are being treated at ICU’s throughout the country. Their median age is 70 years.

Ten of those at ICU’s are women and the rest are men. 86.8% of intubated patients have an underlying disease or are aged 70 years and older.

20-days old Afghani infant

Among the new cases is a 20-days old Afghani infant and his homeless mother who have been tested positive near the Moria migrant camp on Lesvos.

They have both been transferred to Mytilini General Hospital from the streets, where they had been living after the devastating fire that charcoaled camp earlier in the week.

The baby is reportedly having breathing difficulties and acute fever, and might have to be transferred to Athens for treatment at an ICU with a flight by the Emergency Ambulance Service (EKAB).
