The Head of CP said that the epidemiological load on the island remains high despite a slight decline in the last couple of days.

He added that if the decline continues, this would be the last week with strict restrictions.

Kalymnos was placed in the special lockdown status on May 5 due to an outbreak, the second in this year.

Locals are allowed to leave their homes only for important reasons and leave the island only for health reasons.

In the rest of Greece, major lockdown restrictions were lifted on May 14.
