Athens, the capital of Greece, almost returned to the “ghost town” due to new types of coronavirus (Covid-19) measures. The streets of the Monastiraki district, which also includes the Acropolis, are full of tourists, and now resembles a set of science fiction films in which few people are wearing a mask.
Athens, the capital of Greece, almost returned to the “ghost town” due to new types of coronavirus (Covid-19) measures.
In Athens, where there are important ancient buildings and the birthplace of many famous philosophers such as Socrates, until now 966 cases have been identified, 28 people have died, including a Turkish minority member in Western Thrace.
Within the scope of the curfew across the country, which started on 23 March, you can only go out with a form where the destination is specified.
The police impose fines of 150 for those who do not comply with the ban, and 5 thousand euros for those who come from abroad and violate the 14-day quarantine rule.
In Greece, where similar images are also experienced in other cities, people are allowed to go out to the streets to go to markets, hospitals and pharmacies, to exercise and to walk their pets.
Travel to Brussels only
As part of the measures implemented in Greece, Aegean Airlines had suspended all international flights from 26 March to 30 April.
In the statement made by the company, it was noted that only a small number of flights will be made to Brussels in order to maintain contact with the EU, and domestic flights were also reduced significantly.
