A decade has now passed since Greece started recording more deaths than births annually and, if anything, the problem has gotten worse.

Greece begins mandatory testing for unvaccinated workers

Greece on Monday introduced mandatory weekly testing for all unvaccinated workers as it struggles to boost vaccination rates that are lagging the European Union average.

Public and private sector employees will have to pay for weekly tests or carry a vaccination certificate to gain access to their place of work, while unvaccinated children at high schools which reopened Monday are being given test kits distributed at government expense.

Similar restrictions will also apply at sports stadiums, museums and archaeological sites, as well as indoor leisure areas like cinemas and restaurants.

Some 56% of Greece’s residents have been fully vaccinated, while the average rate in the EU is just over 60%.

Some way off Kef, judging by the map.

Covid booster vaccines: Over 50s, care home residents and health workers to get third jab

Covid booster vaccines will be offered to people aged 50 and over, those in care homes and frontline health and social care workers, the government has announced.

It means more than 30 million people in the UK will be offered a third dose of either the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna coronavirus vaccines.

Three vaccines have been approved as safe and effective as boosters - AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna - but experts have said Pfizer is the preference after studies showed it is well tolerated and works well as a booster.
