Greece imposes coronavirus lockdown on Kalymnos

The Greek island of Kalymnos has entered a five-day lockdown, following a rise in coronavirus infections.

The news comes a day after restrictions were eased across the country.

Greece’s Civil Protection Ministry said it was imposing a lockdown until May 10 “for urgent reasons of serious risk to public health” and to limit the spread of the virus.

Under the restrictions, residents will only be allowed to leave their homes for workplaces that remain open, to visit the doctor or pharmacy, to walk their pets or for supermarket shopping until 6 p.m.

Other restrictions include the suspension of construction work and religious ceremonies.

Residents are only permitted to leave the island for health reasons.

It is recalled earlier this week, cafes and restaurants finally reopened in Greece for sit-in service for the first time in nearly six months.
