Greece imposes strict 6 pm weekend curfew to curb COVID-19 spread

Greece has imposed a strict weekend curfew from 6 pm in major cities and closed shops in the wake of a recent surge in coronavirus infections.

Footage filmed in Thessaloniki last night (February 6) showed police checkpoints and deserted streets.

Deputy Civil Protection Minister Nikos Hardalias said the only shops which can remain open on weekends as of Saturday will be supermarkets, grocery stores, bakeries, gas stations and pharmacies.
