Coronavirus Lockdown: Greece Bans Swimming, Fishing, Water Sports

Authorities in Greece have banned swimming, fishing and water sports as the country toughens up restrictions of movement to combat the spread of coronavirus.

According to public broadcaster ERT, the Ministry of Shipping and Islands Policy has sent a circular to all port authorities throughout the country informing them about the ban on these activities.

The new regulation confirms that swimming and water sports will not be regarded as psychical exercise which is allowed under existing rules.

According to the circular, activities banned include:

*    swimming
*    fishing from land and underwater fishing (speargun)
*    water-sports (canoeing, kayaking, wind surfing, kite surf, paddleboarding, sailing)

Supermarket Chains in Greece Announce Generous Bonuses for Their Staff

During these difficult times for all of us, doctors, nurses and carers have been at the forefront of the global fight against the coronavirus pandemic, receiving very well-deserved accolades and praise for their unstinting work in tough conditions.

However, another professional category is also trying its utmost to keep our societies going — the one that allows us to put food on our tables each and every day.

This category includes the people who work in supermarkets, who are trying to do their very best to offer their services during this time of social distancing.

For this reason, one Greek supermarket after the other in the last few days has been announcing generous bonuses which will be paid to their staff as a ”thank you” for all their hard and sometimes perilous work during the pandemic.

Football's power-brokers fail to agree deal on players' pay during coronavirus crisis

The stand-off has been magnified after Tottenham Hotspur’s decision to furlough more than 500 of its non-playing staff. One of Europe’s richest clubs using a government emergency bail-out while continuing to pay its players in full, an average £70 thousand per week, is not a wholesome look as the UK reflects on a day of a record number of deaths. Remember the Premier League grossed in excess of £4 billion at the last count.

The irony is the majority of the best paid players are almost certainly perfectly happy to accept a wage adjustment to help out; many already do much community and charity work that doesn’t get anywhere near the attention their exploits on the pitch do.
