  • [01] PM Karamanlis briefed on influenza issue

    Health Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos briefed Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, in a meeting held at the Maximos Mansion on Saturday, on the issue of the H1N1 Novel Influenza and on measures taken to shield the country that safeguard it from the disease's escalating development. "Greece is a safe country. There is no cause for concern," Avramopoulos said after the meeting.

    Avramopoulos added that there have been 14 cases in the country so far, eight of which have been cured completely and one is being treated at home. The minister mentioned that the increase in cases is within reason, while noting that it is a positive fact that all the cases were detected at entrances to the country.

    The Health minister stressed that the country has been shielded and that all the relevant services have taken all the measures necessary for the month of September as well, when there may be a possible increase in cases.

    "What is important is that we are in a state of readiness, instructions have been given to all the services and big hospitals are ready," Avramopoulos concluded.

    [02] Greek islands endowed by nature with beauty

    The Greek islands are surrounded by an endless expanse of blue sea. The islands constitute Greece's main morphological characteristic and are part of the country's culture and traditions. The country has 6,000 islands and islets that are scattered all over the Aegean and Ionian seas, while only 227 of them are inhabited. The Greek archipelago has 7,500 kilometres of beaches, out of the country's total of 16,000 kilometres. Many Greek beaches have received awards from the "Blue Flags of Europe" programme and, apart from swimming, they are suitable for diving, underwater exploring, sea skiing, sailing and windsurfing.
