Citizens complied with the new measure regarding the restriction of movement  in order to prevent the transmission of coronavirus.

Most citizens had the special forms with them, while some used handwritten  statements when they were informed of the new system.

Yesterday, Monday, March 23, the police set up roadblocks across the country, but on the first day, the policemen only gave out warnings to those who violated the measure.

In his remarks, Citizen Protection Deputy Minister Lefteris Economou, after emphasizing the citizens’ compliance, stressed that the measure will be strictly implemented from Tuesday.

Mr. Economou reiterated that the measures are aimed at limiting unnecessary movement and that the police authorities interpret them in a rational manner and offer the appropriate solution in each case. “We do not want to halt production or life in the country”, he said.
