Hardalias: Greek Public Largely Observant of Health Measures

ATHENS – The first two days following the initial lifting of lockdown measures show that the vast majority of Greek society have understood how critical the situation is with the Covid-19 pandemic and has followed the rules, Civil Protection Deputy Minister for Crisis Management said during the daily health briefing.

Speaking a short time, Hardalias said it's best to move ahead slowly rather than to be forced to backtrack, and criticized two coffee-shop owners who opened their stores illegally.

In the last four days, 18 owners have committed violations and 19 individuals have been arrested.

Stores are being opened gradually per sector, after their shutdown on March 16. Food places in particular may not seat people but can operate as take-outs.


ANKARA - Continuing his country's relentless verbal assault, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that being a member of the European Union won't help Greece if trouble brews between them.
