Health authorities said there were no new deaths in the last 24 hours, leaving total fatalities from Covid-19 in Greece at 203. The median age of deceased patients was 76 years and most had underlying health problems.

A total of 8 individuals are at intensive care units and 127 have left ICU.

The health body said the the jump in the number of tests is attributed to the completion of its bulk inclusion of laboratory data.
