Following weeks of lockdown, Greece has started a phased reopening of services in the country, with the goal of having hotels operational by July.
Greece’s handling of COVID19 has been considered impressive, with early efforts to enforce a strict lockdown resulting in a much lower number of cases than other European countries. To date, the country has had approximately 150 deaths. This week, selected businesses such as hairdressers, florists and bookshops were given the go-ahead to reopen for the first time. With some progress being made in the flattening of curves, the country’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has said that it is a possibility that hotels may open by July.
