Tourism Min to BBC: Greece Safeguarding Health of Residents, Visitors alike

LONDON  – Greece will safeguard the health of both its population and that of tourists, Greek Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis told BBC World, commenting on the European Commission's proposals to revive tourism during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Theoharis said Greece will use the model of a gradual restart of tourism activities, as it has done with the pandemic, to prevent a new breakout of infections.

Detailed protocols regarding the operation of hotels, transport and beaches are being unrolled this week to deal with issues related to tourism, based on recommendations by scientists, he noted.
