The Megalochari was evacuated and patients were taken to the Attiko Hospital. It was the ninth nursing home in Greece to confirm a coronavirus outbreak since the onset of the pandemic. As the number of cases topped the 500 daily mark for the first time on Friday, health authorities are concerned about a spike in infections among older citizens. Experts are concerned that the drop in temperatures could intensify the epidemiological trend. [AP]
