This excerpt is literally making my eyes hurt.
While the media implicitly understate the importance of covid19 deaths of the elderly or people with "underlying conditions", it is interesting to read how these people experience the health crisis:
Unfortunately, in Greece there is a small minority of orthodox zealots that mention "the number of the beast" and stuff like that, while talking about surveillance.
