Sixty five new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, three on Ithaka.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1660
1 USD = € 0.8563

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.


Ten day weather forecast for Kefalonia:
This is an overall forecast, due to the mountainous terrain the weather can be very localised.

Man’s dead body ‘taken to post office in attempt to claim pension’

Police are investigating reports a man's body was brought into a post office before an attempt was made to claim his pension.

According to local reports, a man entered a post office in Co Carlow on Friday morning and tried to collect a pension on behalf of another man.

After being told the man would have to be present for pension payment to be claimed, he reportedly left and two people later returned with a man in his 60s, who appeared to be propped up.

The Irish Times reports the body of the man was left at the scene after the two men fled when a woman reported suspicions.

Carlow mayor Ken Murnane said the local community is absolutely shocked by the reports.
