Twenty seven new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1554
1 USD = € 0.8572

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.

Covid: Thousands needed hospital treatment after lockdown DIY

New NHS figures show that thousands of people injured in household accidents were admitted to English hospitals during Covid-19 lockdowns... including eight people over the age of 90 who needed hospital treatment after falling from playground equipment.

And while many people found comfort during lockdowns by adopting pets, 7,386 people were admitted to English hospitals after being bitten or struck by a dog, while 60 others sought assistance after encounters with venomous spiders.

One 90-year-old woman was admitted to hospital after being bitten or struck by a crocodile or alligator.

What’s new, pussycat? How feline film stars are trained to perform

From Stuart Little and Pet Sematary to new movie The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, cats can be scene-stealers. But how do you get such fickle and independent creatures to behave on camera?

If article looks to be behind a 'paywall' try refreshing the page. Often works with the Guardian for me.

Dead turtle discovered on the beach by Hotel Mediterranee, Lassi. Aroma suggests it's been there a good few days.
