Brit dies of coronavirus in Corfu after going to clinic with 'severe pneumonia'
The 71-year-old man, from Scotland, was in an "extremely bad condition" with symptoms of "severe pneumonia" when he was transferred to Corfu's General Hospital, it is reported

The 71-year-old man, from Scotland, died on Thursday morning, just hours after he was admitted to Corfu's General Hospital in an "extremely bad condition", it is reported.

Greece is not on the Scottish Government's list of 'safe travel' corridors, meaning people arriving in Scotland from Greece must quarantine for 14 days.

Corfu is among the regions in Greece that are on the UK Government's travel corridor list. Travellers arriving in England do not have to quarantine.

Homeless man died after being ejected from police station in freezing weather, inquest hears

Pericles Malagardis, 63, was found unresponsive outside Uxbridge station nearly five hours after he was asked to leave.

The inquest heard the "the deterioration in his physical condition was not noticed” by station staff who watched a DVD inside as he waited overnight in freezing conditions to collect his dog.

The Greek national was sleeping rough at Heathrow airport and had gone to the west London police station on 4 March 2016 to collect the dog, which had been placed in kennels while he was in hospital the day before.

He was told the dog would be brought to the station for collection the following day.

This hotel is in Hionata. Pictures here of the construction work and finished product.

We saw that when we were there in August seemed an odd place for an hotel.

Hionata / Valriano are nice villages but don't think I'd want to book a stay there, too residential, too far out. Maybe a few tavernas will open in the village(s)
