42 year old man was admitted into the University Hospital in Iraklio, Crete with e serious bronchopneumonia after being infected with the H1N1 virus. This is the second serious swine flu case in Greece. One week ago another man was admitted with the same symptoms in ER of the same hospital. The 42 year old man is on IV in an isolated room, because there are no free beds in the ER in Iraklio. The patient had felt sick four days ago, when he went to the hospitals to make some tests. While he was waiting for the test results, his condition went for the worst and today he went to the hospital, where the doctors found out that both of his lungs are damaged.

Health minister Dimitris Avramopoulos said today that Greece will be among the first countries, which will receive the vaccine against the new virus and it will be enough for the whole population. The first vaccine package is expected in September. According to the minister, there is clarity about the pandemic in the medical field but the Greek government is preparing for the worst case scenario. The National plan for fight against swine flu is being updated every 15 days in relation to how fast the disease spreads.
