Tourists return to Greece as nation continues Covid restrictions

Jul 31, 2020 10:20 IST

Greece is cautiously reopening its tourism industry, despite tough new coronavirus restrictions that came into force this week. Most of the new restrictions are unrelated to tourism. They include a strong recommendation that people attending church services wear face masks. Experts say new cases do not yet signify a significant change in the overall risk facing the country, but urge stricter enforcement of existing restrictions. So far, Greece has escaped the worst of the coronavirus, with far fewer cases than most European countries. As of July 30, it has had a total of 4,336 confirmed cases, and 203 deaths.
