Covid-19: Dutch sign up for test holiday on Greek island

A Dutch travel firm will take nearly 200 people for an eight-day holiday in Greece aimed at seeing if tourism is feasible during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Those picked will have an all-inclusive getaway on the island of Rhodes at a cost of €399 (£344; $472) per person, but there are some catches.

They will not be allowed to leave the resort and will have to quarantine for up to 10 days when they return home.

At least 25,000 people have signed up for the government-backed experiment.

Tavernas and restaurants across Greece will be able to open outdoor seated areas, e.g. kioskis, sometime during April. Presumably that's unless the spread of coronavirus continues to increase?

Good news, now to wait and see if/when we are allowed to go!

No holidaymakers have been arrested for violating a “ban” on non-essential foreign travel despite a crackdown announced by Priti Patel, according to figures obtained by The Independent.

Data gathered through freedom of information requests suggest that zero arrests have been made under coronavirus laws at airports in England in the two months since the home secretary said police would start enforcing the prohibition.

Hundreds of thousands of people have flown in and out of the country since the announcement, including half a million passengers at Heathrow Airport in February alone.

There's some hope - although it looks as though we're all expected to holiday in rip-off Britain
