Speaking after Tsiodras, Civil Protection Deputy Minister for Crisis Management Nikos Hardalias said the rollback of coronavirus-related restrictions in public movement as of Monday has created a new reality, one that is unprecedented and fluctuating on a daily basis.

He also condemned some coffee shops and bars in cities outside of metropolitan areas which he said had abused the idea of take-out coffee.  "Take away does not include alcoholic drinks," the Minister said, "it means you order, you take it, you leave the store." Authorities will be on the lookout for such phenomena, he stressed, and impose fines.
