Greece to follow EU recommendations on COVID-19 for travellers from China


Greece will adopt the recent recommendations made by the European Unions on COVID-19 for travellers from China, Ekathimerini has reported.

This comes following a surge in COVID-19 cases in China and after EU officials recommended on Wednesday that passengers flying from China to the EU should have a negative COVID-19 test before they board.

This means that when visiting Greece, travellers from China will in future require pre-departure COVID-19 testing and will be required to wear high-protection face masks.

The rules were agreed at a meeting chaired by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and attended by officials from the Health Ministry, which is expected to make an announcement detailing the new measures.

China plans to ease travel restrictions on January 8, despite a wave of new infections which has left Chinese hospitals and funeral houses overwhelmed.
