Greek health authorities reported the death of two patients from the coronavirus on Sunday night following nearly three days without any fatalities at all.
Sunday’s first victim was a 66-year-old woman who was being treated at the capital’s Sotiria Hospital, who also suffered from underlying health problems which contributed to her death.
Just a few hours later, an 87-year-old man succumbed to the virus at the NIMTS Naval Hospital, also in Athens. He too had suffered from underlying health problems, according to reports.
