Greece aiming at a May 14 date for reopening tourism, Theoharis tells ‘Politico’

Greece is pinning its hopes on an early May 14 opening for tourism this year, Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis said in an interview with the online magazine “Politico.eu” released on Monday, while its strategy for bringing back tourists hinges on the country’s numerous small islands.

Part of this strategy, the magazine reported, are priority coronavirus vaccinations for residents of small islands and islets “so those locations can be marketed as COVID-free” but also for practical reasons as “it would make little sense to send medical teams back and forth to administer doses to different population groups over time.”

“Fournoi, Chalki, Symi, Ereikousa and dozens of other tiny islets with fewer than 1,000 residents in the Aegean and Ionian seas have been targeted by the authorities. Kastellorizo, the country’s most remote island, located on the easternmost edge of the Dodecanese, was the first place in Greece to have its entire adult population vaccinated – all 500 of them,” the article said

  1. I am still wondering if the tourist season will really happen , I am still amazed at the travel ban , why ? what proven purpose does this provide ( Harassment at a new level ) and a ticket , For an individual out of work ( By a Policemen with new powers and a job ) These are the type of laws and control you all fought against (ottoman rule all over again ). Your children not attending school is ridiculous and uncalled for . Why have we become the new Enemy. ? Why have the Police gained new empowerment over my earning ability and life , Why ? You all have to realize that this empowerments will never go away (Face diaper will become a way of life mandated by the new ruling class ).
