Lessons from 2020

The decision to open the country up to international tourism last year came at a cost to public health. Greece has this year installed controls which are based on that experience. 

The country must avoid making the same mistakes and certainly not give in to the complacency which – also amid the urgency to cover for the lost ground – resulted in the second coronavirus wave in 2020.

The filters look good on paper. This time, they must be implemented.
