Greece to Ease More COVID-19 Measures by End of Next Week

ATHENS — "I believe that by the end of next week we can expect some announcements and I say this because I am aware that there is great interest with respect to the night-time curfew," stated government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni to radio SKAI on Friday.

Peloni said that there was a good downward course for Covid-19 but also noted that the virus was still here and that everyone must be cautious.

On a decision by the United Kingdom to not move Greece to its green list of travel destinations, which are not required to observe a quarantine, Peloni said that that this was the same for all European countries that are tourist destinations. "The UK is following a tough line. We respect the decision; however, in a period when the European COVID Certificate is being implemented, I believe that it is out of step with the overall climate," Peloni said.


ATHENS - A lawsuit filed against former transport minister Kostas Karamanlis over the 2023 head-on train crash in Tempi that killed 57 will go to the Parliament - controlled by the ruling New Democracy - to decide whether to let it go to court.
