NEW YORK – The annual Greek Independence Parade on Fifth Avenue – if it is not cancelled due to the coronavirus – will not be graced by the renowned and beloved Ezones, the Presidential Guard of the Republic of Greece.

Officials in charge of the Presidential Guard have already sent out official notices that they have cancelled all trips abroad, referring to their visits to New York and Australia.

Given the fast changing state of affairs in New York City over the past few hours and the general public anxiety, it now seems that the fate of the parade on Fifth Avenue is up in the air. The National Herald will follow up with a more detailed report.
