Another three people died in Greece last weekend from complications caused by the influenza A (H1N1) virus raising the number of fatalities to 5, while 35 remain hospitalized in intensive care units, the country’s center for disease control and prevention (KEELPNO) said.

“The country is entering a phase of increased flu activity,” KEELPNO notes, adding that the epidemic is expected to peak next month, in line with the situation in other European countries.

The center also said that the vast majority of patients who are in ICU had not been vaccinated against the virus despite the fact that they belong to high risk groups.
