Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

A quote from the article: Visitors who test negative are required to self-quarantine for 7 days, while the ones who test positive must spend 14 days under a supervised quarantine. The time periods given seem to be more or less the opposite of what happens in the UK and doesn't seem to be very logica...

Re: Greek Terrorists

Sorry to here that Ray. I hope the treatment is successful. I'm sill breathing and looking fow as my father in law used to say. If I jump up and down I sound like a maraca with the number of tablets I take but at least they are all for the relatively normal things that occur at my age. Good luck old...

Re: A New Case

...Hi Warwick, I didn't know it about the KEP! So you must call them by phone, agree a time, then go..? That is how it is supposed to work. Obviously some KEP offices may bend the rules a bit. A friend had to go to the KEP office at the Town Hall in Chania. They had got her name completely wrong wh...

Re: Greek Terrorists

I sometimes wonder if there are more left wing terrorist groups in Greece than there are left wing terrorists?

Welcome back Ray. Hope you are well. I haven't been able to have a decent argument on here for ages. Cheers.

Re: Weather websites

...The drive approaching along the coast from the east is not that attractive in parts... A very good example of the art of understatement I think? Would "The land where poly-tunnels grow" be a better description? The last time I drove along that road, many years ago, I gave up long befor...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

...Locals don’t want tourists bringing the virus in to their communities.....and understandably so... I don't think it is so much tourists but they didn't want anybody who did not live on the island to come and that included mainland Greeks. As part of the lockdown the islands were pretty effective...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

...Just a question please for all of you that are fortunate enough to be where we should be now. (Crete!). Friends with a house on much smaller island have been told that when they can eventually get to their house in Greece they should expect some animosity from the locals! Our friends live there ...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

...PS. There is no mention of direct flights to any other Greek airports... I don't think direct flights to other airports were intended to start until 1 July. There are two changes: 1) the number of countries has increased from 20 to 29 and 2) Thessaloniki has been added as a Greek destination whe...

Re: Weather websites

I suppose a lot depends on what you want the information for. In my case it is usually when is it most likely to rain in the next few days and how hot/cold is it going to be, e.g. do I put the washing machine on overnight tonight or leave it a couple of days, should I jet-wash the balcony or are we ...

Re: A New Case

...Btw, read that in Athens people must wear masks+gloves to enter into official buildings/offices. I don't think that it is just Athens. I think it is true of all official buildings but I am not certain. KEP for example is operating by appointment only, you can't just walk in. I found that in AB p...

Re: British hopes of summer holidays abroad quashed!

...I think there is a hidden agenda here......to help the U.K. economy!... You could well be correct Maud but, because of the restrictions being placed on tourist accommodation and on bars and restaurants that tourists would visit, many establishments are saying it is not economical to open. Don't ...

Re: Weather websites

I use Weather Underground . The link is to Mouzouras Station which is on Akrotiri close to Chania Airport but I find it is pretty accurate even where I am to the South West of Chania. You can find other stations. I use the ten day forecast and it remembers C/F, which you can set with the little whit...

Re: A New Case

That clarifies it a lot Kookla. The reason I asked the question is that with the swab test it is virtually impossible to get a false positive but it is possible to get false negatives. The test method amplifies the RNA in the sample and searches for RNA that matches the virus. If RNA of the virus is...

Re: A New Case

Which of the two cases mentioned in the first post on this thread are you referring to, Evansmr1? There was an 87 year old Kissamos man who was reported to have tested positive on Sunday. See for example Crete Tip for Sunday 24 May. I presume he and his family are the ones who were reported as subse...

Re: A New Case

My late wife spent three weeks in a neurosurgery ward at Chania general hospital in 2010. It was spotless and immaculate back then. A&E was a bit chaotic but clean and efficient. At one point during the three weeks she was moved to another ward while the original one was deep cleaned. She was th...
