Plan to turn Skorpios into a Davos-like conference venue

Dmitry Rybolovlev’s plan for the transformation of Skorpios island, near Lefkada in the Ionian Sea, into a super-luxurious tourism complex has entered the final stretch.

The Russian tycoon’s ambitions for the island formerly owned by the Onassis family, however, go much further than that.

Besides the tourism infrastructure of luxury accommodation and sports facilities being planned, Rybolovlev aspires to develop facilities of Davos-like standards, allowing the island to host high-level closed conference events.

The cost of staying at the ‘new’ Skorpios will reach up to 1 million euros per week.

Work stoppage at Argostoli hospital tomorrow, Tuesday, 23 February. Not sure how it will affect things, may not be the best day to go, if you can avoid it.

A bit baffling at first - man running into woods or dog running out?

Lockdown roadmap out of Covid – what is reopening and when?

Boris Johnson has unveiled long-awaited plans on how lockdown measures will be eased in England.

The prime minister said the government will be “cautious” in its approach, and four key tests will need to be met as restrictions are gradually relaxed across the country from next month.

8 March: Mr Johnson has told MPs all school and college students in all year groups can go back to the classroom from 8 March, with outdoor after-school sports and activities also allowed to restart.

29 March: The “rule of six” will return, along with a new two-household rule, at the end of next month.

No earlier than 12 April: The hospitality industry, including pubs and restaurants, is expected to reopen outdoors with the rule of six or new two-household rule in force.

No earlier than 17 May: Gatherings of up to 30 people will be permitted outdoors at this point. However, the rule of six and two-household rule will apply indoors as people are allowed to meet inside for the first time in months.

No earlier than 21 June: All legal limits on social contact will be lifted from 21 June at the earliest.

What four conditions must be met?

The timetable for lifting restrictions will be subject to four tests at each stage of easing measures, including the success of the vaccination rollout, the effectiveness of the vaccination programme at reducing hospital admissions and deaths, infection rates and the impact of any new coronavirus variants.

Foreign holidays banned until at least May 17 under coronavirus roadmap

Foreign holidays will not be allowed until May 17 at the earliest as a review is conducted into the safety of reopening borders.

The current raft of tough travel restrictions – including triple testing of passengers, quarantine hotels for arrivals from red list countries and 10-day self-isolation at home for other travellers – will remain in place until mid-May.

However, the review will investigate how they could be lifted through vaccine certificates for travellers who want to holiday abroad and verify their inoculations, and through testing for both inbound and outbound travellers.
