  • [01] H1N1 shows signs of abating in country

    (ANA-MPA) -- The novel influenza A (H1N1) is reportedly abating in Greece although scientists underline that the number of deaths caused by the virus has risen in the past few weeks, the National Influenza Pandemic Committee concluded on Thursday.

    Seventeen of the 93 novel influenza victims since the outbreak of the epidemic died in 2010. The latest victim is a 50-year-old woman who suffered from diabetes and chronic respiratory failure, while a six-year-old girl with no prior health problem is being treated in a hospital's ICU since Wednesday.

    Fifty people, on average, are being hospitalised on a daily basis with novel influenza and the need for vaccination still exists, particularly for high-risk population groups, according to the committee. Roughly 80 pct of the people who died from the novel influenza virus were in a high-risk group and 20 pct had no prior health problems.

    [02] Stocks end 1.0% higher

    Stocks recovered some ground at the Athens Stock Exchange on Thursday, following a recovery in intenational markets. The composite index ended 1.0 pct higher at 2,195.41 points, with turnover an improved 292.798 million euros.

    The FTSE 20 index rose 0.81 pct, the FTSE 40 index ended 0.46 pct higher and the FTSE 80 index rose 0.04 pct. The Food/Beverage (5.57 pct) and Travel (4.82 pct) scored the biggest percentage gains of the day, while Personal Products (1.59 pct) and Insurance (1.11 pct) suffered losses.

    United Textiles (16.67 pct), Texapret (13.33 pct), Elfico (11.45 pct) and Desmos (11.11 pct) were top gainers, while Klonatex (20.0 pct), Compucon (10.0 pct), Praxitelio (8.70 pct) and Edrasi (8.70 pct) were top losers.
