A few days ago, at the Tritaia Crossroads, another incident was recorded of a “black widow” spider biting a woman who was doing agricultural work in the area.

The woman fainted on the way to the hospital. Finally, she was hospitalised in Agios Andreas Hospital, where she was given the antidote for the spider venom and was discharged after 6 days.
