Greece to Provide Free Tests to Approximately 900,000 Employees

ATHENS — "This week we will provide free tests available through pharmacies to approximately 900,000 employees in the private and public sectors, such as retailers, people working in restaurants, cafes, transport, financial services and justice," government spokeswoman Aristotelia Peloni said on Monday during a press briefing.

She underlined that "our country, once again, is a pioneer, establishing free distribution of self-diagnostic tests to the entire population. It is an important complementary tool that will contribute both to a safer opening of economic and social activities and to stopping the pandemic. To ensure the required adequacy, a new tender has already been launched for the supply of an additional 10 million self tests."

Peloni also referred to the words of the prime minister that "when the government trusts the citizen, he responds responsibly".


ATHENS - ​​It’s no surprise to anyone who’s seen drivers on Greek roads blasting through stop signs and red lights, nearly careening at high speeds and motorcycles weaving in and out - that it’s often deadly.
