23-year old boy in last stage of right cardiovascular insufficiency and several heart attacks is being treated in "Onassis" hospital. The nightmare began on August 7, when he was admitted in the hospital. During the treatment he had a heart attack so he was put on systems and a breathing mask, while being also treated for the virus.

The other seriously ill patient is a 28 years old officer, who is in a critical condition since last Friday and is being treated in the emergency therapy department of the Naval hospital in Athens. The patient has not suffered from breathing or other chronicle health problems but while he was being treated in the hospital with serious flu symptoms, his condition suddenly worsened. The doctors had to put him on systems and transfer him to ER.

The 53-year old French tourist, who came to spend his vacation in Greece and found himself in a hospital with swine flu, is getting better. He had a serious case of the illness as well and he had to be admitted in Rio University hospital in Patra.

Yesterday, the Minister of health, Dimitris Avramopoulos, and Athens mayor Nikos Kaklamanis headed the official opening of the first swine flu treatment office in the Athenian health center in the city-hall on Solonos Str. 78. The office will work from 8 in the morning to 6 in the afternoon and from the fall will be used as a vaccination center. The office can be visited without an appointment and working there are a general practitioner, a pediatrician, medical personnel and administrative workers. The examination consists of creating a complete medical map and a test (rapid diagnostic test) for indentifying group A or group B flu.

Another six medical offices will be opened by the end of the month at the Athenian municipality which will be later turned into vaccination centers. In the beginning of September, municipality employees will begin training sessions with kindergarten personnel in order to introduce prevention methods and methods to restrict passing the infection from a child to another.
