Allegedly another case of coronavirus on Kefalonia, a sixty year old male admitted to Argostoli hospital late Saturday night.

Apparently the man's 60 y-o wife has also tested positive for coronavirus.

EODY chief warns infectious UK Covid-19 variant could become dominant virus in Greece

A total of 403 cases of the new UK variant of Covid-19 have been registered in Greece so far, Panagiotis Arkoumaneas, president of the National Organization for Public Health (EODY), has said, while not ruling out the prospect of another full national lockdown to contain infections.

Speaking on Skai TV on Monday, Arkoumaneas said that the fast-spreading UK variant of the coronavirus could become the predominant strain in Greece in the coming months.

He said the British strain is up to 40 percent more transmissible, however adding there is no evidence of an increase in mortality.

On domestic flights, only essential travel is permitted.

Apparently the Minister for Tourism has been asked in the Vouli (Parliament) whether the necessary studies will be undertaken to determine if Melissani and Drogarati are safe to open this summer following the Ianos medicane. No answer as yet, so far as I'm aware.
