Greek PM announces three-week lockdown to stem jump in infections - 5 November, 2020

greek-lockdown-announced.jpg


Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced on Thursday a three-week nationwide lockdown in an effort to stop an “aggressive” jump in infections, a rise in intubations and intensive care admissions.

The lockdown will be the second since the start of the pandemic and will go into effect on Saturday morning.

All retail stores will close and travel between regions will be banned, while authorities will reintroduce a system obliging citizens to send text messages to a government number to leave home to work, shop, visit a doctor or take exercise. Secondary schools will close and introduce distance learning, though kindergartens and primary schools will stay open.

“Once again, I choose to take measures sooner rather than later,” Mitsotakis said in a televised address to the nation, adding that his decisions are being guided by the expert committee advising the government.

Mitsotakis says a surge in new cases over the last five days have “forced” him to take measures now, instead of waiting to see if recent restrictions will pay off. If the government waited and current measures didn’t work, the pressure on hospitals would be “unbearable,” he explained.

He also said the government will financially support citizens who will be affected by the new lockdown, noting that details of the plan will be presented by Finance Minister Christos Staikouras later today.

In the same presser, infectious diseases professor Sotiris Tsiodras presented data from the last few weeks showing the massive rise in infections. “The virus is here” and the fight against it continues, he said.

The whole country closes until 30/11.

The new measures

- The main difference between the lockdown of November and that of spring, is that (as in Thessaloniki) kindergartens, special education schools and primary schools will remain open, since the students of the Gymnasium and Lyceum are at an age where they can stay home alone for distance learning without the need for special parental leave.

- As in the spring, citizens will again be required to send SMS with six acceptable reasons for moving, to 13033.

- Supermarkets, food distribution, health facilities and pharmacies will remain open to the private sector. There are also expected to be restrictions on flights, especially from abroad.

- In addition to the catering, as News 24/7 points out, the retail trade will also be closed, while the intermediate period of the discounts had just begun. Of course, there will be mask use on all movements.

Record of new Covid-19 cases in Crete - 5 November, 2020

nosokomio-koronoios.jpg


The number of cases in the last 24 hours in Chania, Rethymno and Heraklion exceeded all previous ones.

EODY [The Greek National Public Health Organization] announced a new record of cases in a 24 hour period on Thursday afternoon with 2,917 cases, of which 2,890 are domestic.

Of particular concern is the increase of intubations that reached 187, while there were 29 new deaths.

These figures confirm the concern that led to the decision to impose a lockdown from Saturday until the end of the month throughout the country.

In Crete for the first time 67 cases in a day were recorded, with the sad first in Heraklion, followed by Chania and Rethymno:

* 40 cases in Heraklion prefecture
* 6 cases in Rethymno prefecture
* 21 cases in Chania prefecture

The (second for Greece) lockdown will be similar to that in March 2020. Text messages (to 13033) are again required for exceptions to the exit / traffic restrictions, supermarkets and pharmacies remain open, general retail and especially catering establishments must close, but “delivery” and, if necessary, “take away” remain permitted.

Kindergartens / preschools, elementary schools, but also other (especially special) schools at all levels remain open. Gymnasiums and upper-level high schools, on the other hand, close or stop "face-to-face" teaching and continue teaching via distance / tele-teaching.

Here are the 6 points if you want to leave the house in Greece ........

SMS to 13033:

1 course / trip to a pharmacy or a visit to the doctor, if recommended after relevant communication.

2 corridors / trip to an open shop for the procurement of basic consumer goods, where their delivery / dispatch is not possible.

3 corridors / trip to the bank to the extent that electronic processing is not possible.

4 Movement for the purpose of helping people in need.

5 corridor / trip to a ceremony (e.g. funeral, wedding, baptism) under the conditions provided by law or corridor / trip for divorced or separated parents, which are necessary to ensure the intercourse of parents and children, in accordance with the existing provisions.

6 Physical exercise in the open air or exercise with a pet, alone or in pairs, in the latter case while maintaining the necessary distance of 1.5 meters.
