An alarm was sounded at the Naxos Health Center as a young tourist arrived with symptoms reminiscent of smallpox.
After a series of examinations, it was decided, for precautionary reasons, to transport him to a hospital in Athens, as reported by ERT.
So, in the afternoon, his transfer was organized by Chinook helicopter, which arrived in the capital a little while later.
The patient was air-transported in the special capsule as provided in the coronavirus protocol.
According to information, the first data from the Naxos Health Center indicate that it is most likely chickenpox, but nothing can be ruled out.
