The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic first appeared in Greece on 26 February 2020. Initial cases related to people who had travelled to Italy, as well as a group of pilgrims who had travelled to Israel and Egypt and their contacts.

As of 1 April 2020, there have been 1415 confirmed cases, 53 recoveries and 50 deaths.[4] Health authorities recommend travellers who have returned from affected areas or people who have been in contact with them to stay home for a minimum of 14 days. It may take 2–14 days for symptoms to appear after initial exposure to the virus. Thirteen reporting hospitals have been designated to deal with cases. The main affected areas are Ilia and Attica.

Following the confirmation of the first three cases in Greece, on 27 February all carnival events in the country were initially cancelled, and by 10 March a total of 89 cases had been confirmed in the country, mainly related to people who had travelled to Italy and a group of pilgrims who had travelled to Israel and Egypt, as well as their contacts. Health and state authorities issued precautionary guidelines and recommendations, while measures up to that point were taken locally and included the closure of schools and the suspension of cultural events in the affected areas (particularly Ilia, Achaea and Zakynthos). However, on 10 March, due to the outbreak of the virus in different parts of the country and failure by many to comply with the restrictive measures, the government decided to suspend the operation of educational institutions of all levels nationwide and then, on 13 March, to close down all cafes, bars, museums, shopping centres, sports facilities and restaurants in the country. On 16 March, all retail shops were also closed, two villages in Kozani were quarantined, and all services in all areas of religious worship of any religion or dogma were suspended. On 18 and 19 March, the government announced a series of measures of more than 10 billion euros to support the economy, businesses and employees.

On 22 March the Greek authorities announced significant restrictions on all nonessential transport and movement across the country, starting from 6 a.m on 23 March. Movement outside the house is permitted only for specific reasons that include moving to or from the workplace, shopping for food or medicine, visiting a doctor or assisting a person in need of help and exercising outside individually or in pairs, among other reasons. Citizens leaving their home are required to carry their police ID or passport, as well as some type of attestation depending on the purpose of travel. The Hellenic Police, the Municipal Police, the Hellenic Coast Guard and the National Transparency Authority are empowered to enforce the restrictions and can issue fines for each offense.

On 19 March, the government announced the closure of all hotels across the country, from midnight on March 22 and until the end of April. Only hotels that accommodate personnel that guard the border will continue to operate, as well as three hotels in Athens and Thessaloniki and one hotel per regional unit will remain open. Moreover, all Greek citizens returning from abroad will be subjected to mandatory surveillance and isolation for at least 14 days.[136][137] On 22 March, all parks, recreation areas and marinas were also closed.[138]

Closure of educational institutions

Starting on 28 February, with four confirmed cases in the country, the precautionary local closure of schools was decided when there was concern that members of these school communities may have come into contact with a coronavirus carrier. On the same day, all educational trips abroad programmed by Greek schools were suspended and various municipalities around the country began disinfecting schools locally.[139][140][141] On 4 March, the closure of all public and private educational institutions of all levels in Ilia, Achaea and Zakynthos was decided[142] and from 8 March all educational trips within the country were suspended.[22]

On 10 March, the operation of all schools, universities, daycare centres and all other educational establishments was suspended nationwide for fourteen days.[143] A special purpose leave of 15 days was introduced for working parents.[144] Ten days later, on 20 March, the closure period was extended such that all educational institutions would remain closed until 10 April.[145]

Suspension of religious practices

On 9 March 2020, the Standing Holy Synod of the Church of Greece, the country′s established Eastern Orthodox Church, discussed the coronavirus epidemic and issued an encyclical that was sent to the dioceses of the Church of Greece. Having stated that the Holy Communion could by no means be a way of transmission of diseases, the Standing Synod decided to continue offering and receiving the Holy Communion.[146][147][148] The Synod′s decision created controversy.[149][150] The Synod's stance prompted criticism from the opposition Syriza party, with former prime minister Alexis Tsipras criticising the hierarchy, as did former health minister Pavlos Polakis.[150] Some high-profile Greek medical doctors publicly supported the continuation of practicing Holy Communion, drawing criticism from the Greek Association of Hospital Doctors.[151] (Greek: Ομοσπονδία Ενώσεων Νοσοκομειακών Γιατρών Ελλάδος (OENGE)).

On 11 March, the prime minister of Greece Kyriakos Mitsotakis, in a nationally televised address, told the public to follow the instructions of doctors and experts, and the Church of Greece to cooperate in enforcing the public health regulations.[152] Two days later, the Archbishop of Athens and all Greece Ieronymos stated that the Church agreed with and would implement the public health precautionary measures taken by the national authorities.[153]

On 16 March, after having been briefed by infectious disease spokesman Sotiris Tsiodras, the Church′s Standing Synod decided to suspend all public services except Divine Liturgies on Sundays, which were to be held as usual between 7 and 8 o’clock in the morning; weddings and baptisms were suspended, funerals were to be held with only the immediate family present; churches were to remain open for private prayer.[154][155] Following the Synod′s decision, the Greek prime minister announced the government's decision to suspend services in all areas of religious worship of any religion or dogma from 16–30 March,[156] effectively suspending Sunday Divine Liturgies for that period too.[157]

On 1 April, the Standing Synod of the Church of Greece issued a statement that urged the faithful to abide by the government′s sanitary regulations and to refrain from attending services in churches; it also re-affirmed its stance on the Holy Communion set out in the statement of 9 March 2020 and expressed hope that solemn public celebration of Easter (Pascha), which would properly be on 19 April, could be performed on the night of 26 May, the eve of the Leave-Taking (Apodosis) of Pascha.[158][159]

Refugees and migrants

On February 27, prime minister Mitsotakis announced that illegal entry into Greece would no longer tolerated; as this would be a threat to public health.[160] According to various estimates about 150,600 displaced persons are located in Greece.[161] In the existing camps, doctors, NGOs and refugees considered that measures against the spread of the coronavirus are lacking as people live in overcrowded spaces with little access to proper health services.[162][161][163] On March 24, 21 international human rights organizations active in Greece including Amnesty International, the Human Rights Watch and ActionAid published an open call to the Greek government to take immediate measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the Reception and Identification Centres, where refugees live. The conditions of the centres were criticised as deplorable and dangerous to both the refugees and public health.[164] Médecins Sans Frontières which has a clinic near the Moria camp declared that the numbers in the camps had reached levels such that they could not handle an outbreak of infection within the camp. The government further announced that movement of refugees outside the camps would be restricted as facilities are prepared for confirmed cases,[165] and that it would only allow small goups of refugees and migrants to temporarily exit the camps to obtain basic supplies.[162]

On March 28, the Turkish interior minister announced that 5,800 refugees and migrants that had unsuccessfully attempted to cross the Greek-Turkish border had been relocated to Turkish cities due to the coronavirus pandemic. He also announced that as soon as the pandemic subsided these people would be returned to the border.[166]

On March 31, it was reported that an African couple were infected in the Ritsona refugee camp in Central Greece, the wife having given birth.[167][168]
