Greece Caps Price of PCR Tests at 47 Euros

ATHENS – The development and investments ministry on Tuesday announced that the price of PCR tests for Covid-19 in private clinics and diagnostic laboratories has been capped at a total cost of 47 euros, effective from Thursday.

The cap does not apply if the sample is taken off the premises of diagnostic laboratories and private clinics, in which case the price can set freely.

The above will be included in a decision signed by Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis that is in the process of being issued.


ATHENS - The General Secretariat for Civil Protection on Friday urged the public to be particularly careful and to protect themselves against potential dangers as a result of the intense weather phenomena expected this weekend, starting late on Friday night.
