Greece logs more than 30,000 cases of COVID-19


Greece has already lifted its health measures, including travel restrictions tourists are now allowed to enter the country regardless of following any travel rules, and anti-vaxxers are being allowed to mix with everyone else, but Greece passed a grim milestone, hitting 30,012 COVID deaths.

The Covid-19 pandemic is still lingering in the country, and people are socializing everywhere without following the covid rules, such as wearing masks or social distancing or being required to show vaccination certificates.


The National Organization for Public Health (EODY) has revealed that Greece has logged another 4,539 cases and 15 deaths that total exceeds over the 30,000 mark. Around 109 people are on ventilators in public hospital Intensive Care Units (ICUs), said Kathimerini.

That brought the total number of cases in Greece since the start of the pandemic to rise to 3,496,807, with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis long ago backing away from saying he would consider mandatory shots for all.

Despite that, health care workers who are not vaccinated continue to be suspended without pay and face being fired, although that could change depending on the epidemiological data under constant review.

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.
