However, taking the recent data from Greece and comparing it with, for example, that of Spain, the contrast is staggering! The population of Greece is 10.44 million, with Spain being 46.75 million, roughly a quarter, yet there have been 117 deaths in Greece so far, compared to 20,852 in Spain. The comparison is similar across other European countries and beyond.

We therefore believe that overwhelming thanks is due not only to the Greek government’s rapid and comprehensive response to the crisis, but also the thousands of health service workers and the vast majority of the population, who have abided by the severe yet necessary restrictions on their lives, and continue to do so. We should though keep in mind that this struggle is continuing and that the road to normality will be a difficult one.

Greece has performed better than any other country in Europe in its response to the coronavirus pandemic by taking early containment measures, a report published on Thursday by French think-tank The Bridge has found.

The organization, which is a member of the G20’s international think-tank network T20, compared the response of 10 European countries to the outbreak and their ability to contain the spread of the disease.

In an analysis of the measures adopted by each country in relation to the virus’ first appearance and the first 100 confirmed infections, The Bridge found that “thanks to early and strict containment measures,” Greece, followed by the Czech Republic and Romania, “have successfully managed to flatten the curve and slow down the spread of the virus.”

It said that as a result of delays in “implementing proper lockdown and social distancing measures,” Italy, Spain, France, the UK, The Netherlands and Belgium are the “most severely hit by the outbreak and have struggled to flatten the curve efficiently.”

“The contrast between Greece – which suspended public events and closed schools even before the first 100 cases were detected – and Spain – which took similar decisions at a much later stage of the epidemic – is particularly striking,” the report notes.

Greece has the best results in Europe in terms of flattening the curve for the number of confirmed coronavirus cases, according to a comparative study published by Bridge Tank on Thursday, as reported by international news agencies, ANA reports.

The report compares the COVID-19 outbreak in 10 large European countries and points out that Greece, by promptly imposing strict restrictive measures, has succeeded in flattening the epidemic’s curve and slowing the spread of the virus.

The report particularly noted the comparison between Greece, which took steps before the first 100 cases were traced, and Spain, which took similar decisions at a much later stage of the epidemic.

The chief of the think tank, Joel Ruet, noted that, four weeks after the first 100 COVID-19 cases were found in each country, it has taken 19 days for the number of cases in Greece to double, clearly indicating that Greece has successfully flattened the curve of the epidemic. At the other end of the scale, the number of confirmed cases in the United Kingdom is still rising sharply.

The report adds that in Germany, though it was relatively slow to adopt restrictive measures and then not fully, the number of deaths has not yet reached the levels seen in neighbouring countries but is continuing to rise rapidly.
