Corona in Greece: Numbers are increasing – “Pandemic of the unvaccinated”

This regulation does not (yet) apply to cinemas, theaters and museums in the country: Unvaccinated people will continue to be admitted here if they can present a negative corona test. With the new measures, Athens wants to revive the vaccination campaign, which has been dragging along: Currently, more than 90 percent of the patients in the Greek intensive care units have not been vaccinated against the virus. It is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated”, explained the minister.

In Greece, the corona numbers have recently increased significantly again. The seven-day incidence is over 200, and around 5,000 new infections were reported on Monday (August 24).

Greece: Corona tests no longer free

Corona tests, which were previously available free of charge, will be chargeable from September 13th.

And tourists (Corona rules of popular holiday countries *) should not be happy about this decision.

According to official figures, around 5.6 million of Greece’s 10.7 million people are fully vaccinated against the virus. The government is aiming for a vaccination coverage of 80 percent.
