Greece is a Balkan country, where the pandemic consequences for the new Covid-19 coronavirus have not been as serious, as is the case in rich European countries. However, the country of 11 million inhabitants has recorded 143 deaths and 2,620 confirmed cases, as of 2 May. The Greek people have been in a state of social isolation for six weeks. A large part of enterprises and companies have closed and most of the population remains at home so they use the network, on a daily basis, as a means of information and social communication for much longer than before quarantine.
In these new conditions, Cuba's solidarity and moral advantage has touched not only people in solidarity with the island, but also thousands of Internet users who develop daily the battle for the truth of Cuba, trying to break the media wall of silence and misinformation promoted by the great media.

Since the first month, the page has registered users from 51 countries who have made more than 500,000 posts and comments.

At the same time, dozens of people have responded to an initiative of greek bloggers and rain down on the Internet by posting their photos with the tags #standwith Cuba, #Cubasalva. On the other hand, thousands of Internet users post, daily, comments, photos, videos and images in favor of Cuba, while traffic from websites and pages belonging to the network of Greek bloggers "The Greek Solidarity Network " has skyrocketed in the days of the pandemic.
