In an attempt to further analyze the situation, we compare Greece with the most prosperous countries of Europe. On the graphs below, we can clearly see how citizens’ mobility differ. Greece’s pattern show that the general mobility was low only during the lockdown policies, while during all other periods Greece has the highest mobility.

It is interesting that the mobility in parks, marinas and nature was one of the lowest during the first wave and one of the highest during the summer and early autumn. The mild climate partly explains this pattern, while the citizens’ feelings of danger at the beginning of the pandemic and a pseudo-safety feeling once the virus was contained, explains the opposite reaction.

Test Positivity MA7

Despite, the increased mobility in the country after the 1st lockdown measures were relaxed, the positivity index is either at low or medium level compared to other European countries, which indicates the lower spread of the virus.

In general, despite the different countries’ characteristics, western countries have strong connections worldwide, therefore it was inevitable to suffer the intense of the pandemic.
