Greece Announces Next Covid-19 Vaccine Priority Age Groups

Greece’s national vaccination plan is entering its next phase with the inoculation of the next two priority groups: individuals aged 60-64 and 75-79.

Health Ministry Secretary General for Primary Health Care Marios Themistocleous on Monday announced that the vaccination platform will open on February 10 for senior citizens aged 60-64 and on February 12 for those aged 75-79.

The inoculation of the 60-64 age group will start on February 15.

Those wishing to get vaccinated, can visit http://emvolio.gov.gr via web or mobile app and book an appointment using their TAXIS code or AMKA number.

Looks like emvolio.gov.gr is still in Greek only, so far as I know it's still possible to register at pharmacies or at KEP citizens’ service centers.

Following two potential cases of coronavirus in Argostoli and three in Sami, residents of Sami are being invited to self-quarantine for fourteen days - particularly those living in the Karavomylos area.

Covid: Greece faces third wave, says health minister

Greek Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias said the country is facing a third wave of coronavirus infections, while experts and the government are meeting to evaluate the possibility of new, more restrictive measures to contain the epidemic.

"The analyses that I am receiving from experts show that the third wave is arriving in our country," said Kikilias, speaking to Open TV just prior to an emergency meeting on the pandemic with government ministers.

In the Athens metropolitan area, 71% of intensive-care beds are currently occupied, while across Greece 270 people are in hospital in serious condition.

Revealed: How a 200-year-old Royal Navy figurehead was mistakenly sawn into pieces

One of the most important art works in British naval history has been rediscovered by scientists.

The spectacular ten foot tall early 19th-century wooden figurehead is from the historic Royal Navy warship HMS Victory, the vessel which had been commanded by Admiral Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar, and was thought to have been destroyed or lost in the mid-to-late 20th century – but scientific and historical investigations have now led to its 'rediscovery'.

Covid: Too soon to book holiday, minister warns

People in the UK should not be booking holidays at home or abroad yet due to coronavirus, the transport secretary has warned.

Grant Shapps told the BBC he did not know "where we'll be in terms of cases, deaths and vaccination" by the summer.

He said the UK was talking to other countries about setting up an "international system" for checking if people have been tested or vaccinated.

But this should not be likened to a Covid "passport", Mr Shapps added.

Greek restaurants plea for help as COVID restrictions crush business

Greek restaurant and cafe owners pleaded on Wednesday for additional government support to protect livelihoods and jobs after months of crippling restrictions on their businesses to help stem the spread of COVID-19.

Some 80,000 restaurants and cafes in tourism-dependent Greece, employing about 350,000 people, closed in September and have been allowed to offer only delivery and take away services since.

“I can’t go on, we can’t go on,” said 43-year-old cafe owner Dimitris Katsaros.

“If the shop doesn’t operate we can’t eat, and we do not have 10-20,000 euros stashed away in savings and able to feed ourselves at the same time. If the shop is not operating then that is the end.”

This is the End: Greek Retailers Say Third Lockdown Spells Doom

The third COVID-19 lockdown in Greece that will keep closed non-essential businesses - even barring click-and-collect schemes to pick up outside stores - could see half the businesses in the country close.

That was the dire warning from Giorgos Karanikas, President of the Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (ESEE) who said many small companies already closed half the previous year can’t take the shock.

How the retail sector will operate as of Thursday

As of Thursday, the click-and-collect (dubbed click away by the government) shopping option will stop, the Secretary General of Commerce and Consumer Protection Panagiotis Stampoulidis said on Wednesday, presenting the changes in every sector of the market.

The only shops that will operate with a physical presence as of Thursday are food stores (supermarkets, mini-markets, bakeries), open-air street markets, pharmacies, pet shops, telecommunications companies (exclusively for the repair of appliances and the payment of bills), hearing aids and wig stores, (by appointment), florists (especially for 13-14/2/2021).

All other retail businesses are restricted to electronic sales only (e-shops).

Forcing midwives to say 'chestfeeding' can only undermine the trans rights cause
By trying to be woke, the NHS will succeed only in making life much harder for the people on whose behalf it claims to speak

Midwives at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust have been told to stop using terms including “breastfeeding” and “breastmilk” as part of a new trans-friendly policy. The word “mothers” may no longer be used on its own, and alternative terms for addressing patients include “mothers or birthing parents”, “chestfeeding” and “maternal and parental”....

"Woke" needs to wake up to reality. Apparently Halle Berry was bullied into not taking the role in a film of a transgender female, will probably get in trouble for saying female, and told that the role should be given to a transgender person.
It's called "acting" for a reason! If that's the case then transgender folk will not be getting much work because they should not be able to take non transgender roles.
