Athens Club Shut for Repeat COVID-19 Health Violations

November 7, 2021

ATHENS – New health measures requiring COVID-19 vaccination checks before people can enter most public spots were broken three times in as many days by a popular nightclub which was ordered shut for 60 days.

Kathimerini said it was a well-known establishment but didn’t name it but said the violation entailed failure to check some customers for either vaccination certificates or proof of a negative test.

Health Minister Thanos Plevris vowed massive fines for violators of measures aimed at slowing the spread of the surging pandemic but there was no report whether the club also had to pay a penalty.

Greek police said they would be out in force for two weeks to enforce the measures after earlier restrictions were often ignored, including wearing masks and staying safe social distances.

Spread by anti-vaxxers, the Coronavirus is tearing through the country again and nearing 7,000 cases daily. A 27-year-old woman from northern Greece died of COVID, state-run broadcaster ERT reported.

The woman, who was hospitalized 10 days ago in the city’s Ippokrateio Hospital, had only done one dose of a Covid vaccine when she got infected, the report said, the deadly virus reaching down into younger groups now.
