Doctors believe that the health-attendant got infected in intensive care, where a group of doctors from the National Epidemiological Center of Greece have arrived. The infected health-attendant is prescribed with the same treatment as the other patients.

The Health Ministry reassures all citizens that all carriers of the H1N1 virus have been detected during the early stage and everything is under control. The ministry is expecting the number of infected to increase, because worldwide this virus is pandemic but the symptoms remain mild.
