Thassos sends two rescuers to Athens
On the 26th of March, the local municipality decided to send 2 rescuers (personnel in the health center in Prinos) to Athens in order to help their colleagues there. This is done because the health system in Athens is under pressure and many rescuers (working in ambulances) have shifts that reach 12 hours non-stop.
All citizens above the age of 75 have already received both doses of their Covid-19 vaccinations.
There have also been people between 60 and 65 that have been vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine which is recommended for ages until 65.
On the 26th of March, the vaccination started for those between the ages of 70 and 74.
In addition, April is the month where the vaccinations will start for those between 65 and 69.
As for the specific numbers, the local press announced on the 26th that 1000 vaccinations took place by the 25th. This includes 548 1st doses and 452 2nd doses, meaning that at least 452 people have been fully vaccinated.
What does the future hold?
Since Covid-19 became part of our life on a global scale, we are not able to make safe predictions. However, health experts discuss the gradual reopening of the economy from April. At the same time, the prime minister, as well as the tourism minister have marked the 14th of May as the date when hotels and borders will open. This is not a fixed date but looks more like a realistic goal. Everything will depend on the vaccinations and test results.
For all those that want to visit Greece, it is almost certain that a similar model would be followed as last year. That means you would be able to come to Greece if you have a negative test result or you have recovered from the virus. This year, proof of vaccination will also be accepted as an alternative document to enter the country. We are waiting for the official announcements of the government.
In any case, although the 2021 summer will still not be any close to 2019, it is expected to be better than last year.
