New Coronavirus “Map” to Provide Consistent Preventative Measures across Greece

ATHENS — A new four-level map of health safety and protection from the novel coronavirus was presented by Deputy Civil Defense Minister for Crisis Management Nikos Hardalias on Friday, along with Digital Governance Minister Kyriakos Pierrakakis.

During a twice-weekly televised briefing on the pandemic's development in Greece, Hardalias said that the plan would be used when local restriction measures need to be implemented, based on the severity of the outbreak in specific locales.

The four levels were announced on Tuesday, and are as follows: 1, preparedness; 2, monitoring; 3, increased monitoring, and 4, increased threat. Each locale's epidemiological level will be reviewed every two weeks, he said, and adjusted accordingly.

Factors determining the level of coronavirus measures will depend on updated epidemiological data, he said, while the safety map provides a consistent application of measures across any of Greece's 74 regional districts.



ATHENS - Supreme Court Prosecutor Isidoros Dogiakos ordered an urgent preliminary inquiry into the claims by the newspaper To Vima that unnamed high-ranking Greek police officers offered protection to underworld bosses.
