After the expiry of the ordinance that imposed the restrictions, the central government sent the police to verify compliance with the anti Covid rules
The Greece has decided to deploy additional police officers in the holiday islands to intensify anti-Covid controls, especially in the places frequented by younger people, to counter the worrying spread of the Delta variant. The Guardian reports it. About 186 units were sent to Mykonos, compared to 56 last year, while another 30 agents were deployed in Ios. According to the deputy minister of civil protection, Nikos Hardalias, the two islands are “one step away” from new restrictions. The situation is also worrying islands of Zakynthos, Tinos, Lefkada, Santorini, Paros and Rhodes. The European center for disease prevention and control has included the major Greek islands, including Mykonos, Santorini and Rhodes, yesterday in the map of the areas most at risk for Covid infection, so non-essential travel is not recommended. Last week the Farnesina had launched an alert for 400 young people departing from Italy.
In Mykonos on July 17, an ordinance was issued that provided for the ban on music in the clubs and a night curfew. Hardalias pointed out that the restrictions have helped stop the exponential increase in cases, while acknowledging that the epidemiological burden on the island continues to be high. The ordinance was, however, revoked on July 26: immediately afterwards the crowd began again in the discos, with evenings with a high rate of gathering, as shown by the Instagram stories of an Italian DJ.
