There were 120 patients on ventilators, five less than Friday. Greece has eased its coronavirus travel rules in time for summer. It has removed all of its entry requirements and eased its mask-wearing rules.

The changes will be welcome news to British tourists with a huge surge in holidays abroad. The UK had removed all its travel restrictions in March, with other countries gradually easing their requirements afterwards.

Travellers no longer need to show proof of vaccination, a negative test result or a Covid-19 recovery certificate, regardless of vaccination status. The country had already scrapped the passenger locator forms from May 1.

Previously passengers had to show either proof of being full, having a negative test result or having recovered from coronavirus within the previous 180 days.

Greece has also eased its Covid rules further. The country removed entry requirements from May 1, with passengers no longer required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test.

Now the country has eased its rules on mask-wearing. From June 1, face masks will only be required on public transport and in hospitals and care facilities for the elderly. Masks will no longer be mandatory in all other spaces. Previously they were needed in supermarkets and museums.
