“Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 Advice for travellers”

On the 31st December 2019, the World Health Organization was informed of a cluster of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan in Hubei province, China. On January 9th, 2020, a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) was identified as a cause. Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that usually cause respiratory infections of varying severity in humans and animals. It is estimated that almost one-third of infections of the upper respiratory system in humans can be caused by coronaviruses.

The overwhelming majority of cases have been reposted in China. The novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is transmitted from human to human. Transmission has also been documented by health professionals.

This Coronavirus COVID-19 Guidance was updated on November 07, 2020.

November 7, 2020. Greece has been in compulsory quarantine since dawn due to coronavirus. We can theoretically move on to SMS for the next three weeks, but more and more people are expressing fears that the lockdown will not last until the end of November.

After all, the almost 2,500 cases yesterday may seem far less than the numbers we may see in the coming days. The spread of the coronavirus is aggressive and no one knows if the harsh measures taken now will work perfectly and we will fall into double digits in the near future.

From today, therefore, the movement of citizens throughout Greece is limited and this will be done for specific reasons. It is also mandatory to use a mask everywhere.

Sincerely yours,
