Fokida and Anogia to Enter Red-Alert Status as of Saturday

AMFISSA – The region of Fokida and the municipality of Anogia (Rethymno, Crete) will enter red-alert status as of Saturday, as per the government's announcements on Friday.

The viral load of the novel coronavirus has risen in several regions and municipalities in Greece, in particular the regions of Kozani (especially Eordea and Kozani), Kastoria, Ioannina, Kavala, Imathia (esp. Alexandria), Serres, Kilkis, Zakynthos, Chania and Rethimno, as the weekly and biweekly averages of infections per 100,000 inhabitants are approaching alarming proportions there.

In addition, Larissa's region will no longer be under high-alert status as of 06:00 on Saturday, to facilitate recovery from the earthquake activity there earlier in the week.
