Lemnos authorities are searching for 16 people who travelled with Blue Star Mykonos after a 25-year-old, who had travelled on the ferry to Ikaria, was found positive with coronavirus.
According to limnosreport.gr, the president of the Lemnos Medical Association briefed the health committee recently, in order to take all necessary preventive measures in Lemnos.
The Port Authority of Myrina was also informed of the issue, helping to find out the names of those who had come down to Lemnos and allegedly travelled with the 25-year-old.
The 25-year-old man is being labelled as irresponsible and reckless after breaking quarantine following his arrival in Athens from London, then travelling to Ikaria.
Ikaria Deputy Mayor, Nikos Kalamaras, spoke with protothema.gr saying, “unfortunately our island is embarking on this adventure” and that “the municipality is in constant communication with Civil Protection” .
The 25-year-old reportedly resides in the northern part of the island, in the village of Agios Polycarpos.
The mayor has considered the possibility of quarantining the village of Agios Polycarpos, as the 25-year-old visited shops and may have been in contact with locals.
