The cancellation of the traditional festivals across the country until the end of July, the intensification of controls at the land borders, and the extension of controls to seasonal workers from neighboring countries, are the measures the Ministry of Health’s expert committee proposed to the government, during a teleconference held on Monday, chaired by the Minister of Health, Vassilis Kikilias.

According to the committee, the epidemiological burden in our country has increased in the last two weeks, and we will have a more thorough assessment at the end of the month.

Epidemiologists emphasize that the wearing of protective face masks should be mandatory indoors, and outdoors whenever overcrowding occurs.
