Four new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, also two new cases on Ithaki. A thirty y-o local who was confirmed as having coronavirus about a week ago was moved from isolation at home to Argostoli Hospital and then to hospital in Rio.

Travel rules for trips overseas ‘may change’, says minister
Speculation that Italy, Greece or Spain could be added to ‘amber plus’ list

Britons considering a trip abroad this summer should be aware that “things may change” in terms of the rules for travel, a government minister has warned.

Kit Malthouse was speaking amid speculation that popular destinations with rising Covid-19 infections like Italy, Spain and Greece could be added to the “amber plus” list requiring self-isolation on return to England.

Patch your iPhones and Macs against "actively exploited" zero-day right now

If you're the owner of an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Mac you should update your system right now.

Apple has released a major security update for its devices, after finding a zero-day flaw that the company indicates has been the focus of in-the-wild attacks by hackers, and might have been used to plant malware.

Users are advised to update to the latest versions of iOS (14.7.1), iPadOS (14.7.1), and macOS (11.5.1) to protect against the issue.

Automation software wrested control from pilot in Greece military helicopter crash that killed six: experts

The software issue identified as a cause of last year’s naval helicopter crash off Greece that killed six Canadian crew members needs to be fixed without delay, say experts on the interplay between automation and humans in aircraft.

Two internal reviews by the Canadian Armed Forces found the autopilot took control of the CH-148 Cyclone helicopter, plunging it into the Ionian Sea as the pilot was turning to return to HMCS Fredericton on April 29, 2020.

Sunbeds and beach umbrellas have arrived on Myrtos beach, presumably there's a road for visitors to access it. Haven't heard the beach kantina is operational.
