Greece follows Cyprus example and covers costs of infected tourists

Greece announced this week that it would be covering the cost of treatment for any tourists who test positive for Covid-19 during their visit to the country. Click here to read the full story.

Greece is following the example of Cyprus, which announced last week that it too would be covering costs to include accommodation, food and drink, and coronavirus treatment for both patients and their families.

Government Spokesman Stelios Petsa said, “Our goal is to ensure the maximum safety for residents and visitors.”

Petsas said Greece will be opening up to tourists on June 15 taking “steady and orderly” steps with safety and hygiene rules and protocols in place.

Greek health experts and authorities in collaboration with European and international organizations would be monitoring and reassessing data with regard to the evolution of Covid-19. Based on the feedback, Greece will be opening up to new countries depending on their effectiveness in flattening the curve.
