The 2,000 monoclonal antibodies doses Greece has received have already been distributed to qualifying patients, Alternate Health Minister Mina Gaga said on Thursday.

During a regular briefing, the minister said that anti-viral pills for Covid 19 will be administered under similar criteria to the same groups of patients that qualify for them. The platform for registration by their doctors will open on Friday, and patients will need to sign a release to receive them because there is a positive evaluation on them but not an official permit. Doctors will be obliged to enter progress on the disease on an online database on the 7th and 28th day after the patient has taken the medication.

The doctor said that there is no determination whether people who are intubated are suffering from the Delta or the more recent Omicron variant of the novel coronavirus, except for two patients in an ICU who have Omicron, and one of them was intubated for another reason. However, she said, “Infections of the respiratory system are a significant cause of death,” and one must not think that Omicron is safe, especially with vulnerable groups of people.
