Details are a bit sketchy but most agree that a sixty year old woman has tested positive for coronavirus at Argostoli Hospital after attending a wedding in Ioannina. At present she is self-isolating at home, wherever that may be: some saying the woman is from Fiskardo, some saying Minies. Contacts are being traced.

Greece defends Covid safety as Johnson urged to review quarantine rules
Greek tourism minister calls new Scottish and Welsh quarantine rules overly harsh

Greece has said it is doing everything possible to ensure British visitors are safe from coronavirus, as Boris Johnson faced pressure to review England’s quarantine policies after Scotland and Wales announced restrictions on travellers returning from the country.

The Greek tourism minister, Haris Theoharis, took to the airwaves on Wednesday to defend the nation’s handling of the pandemic, calling the new Scottish and Welsh quarantine rules overly harsh.

“We have put in place a comprehensive set of protocols and measures and we take targeted measures where we see concentrations of cases,” he told the BBC. “We are taking every possible precaution, so we feel that this is a bit harsh.”
