Re: Flying Crete - UK

Wow! To put things simply...... I think people are getting confused on here between doing the right thing to keep everyone safe, and not doing it just because they have been told TO do it! What has happened to common sense? Like Clio, I would be manning the barricades to defend civil liberties. I do...

Re: Nothing has changed on here then

Hear, hear Warwick. - I also have nothing but praise and thanks for Carol. I joined this forum when the website first started. I left for some years (I am not a fan of on-line comments, and I was too busy to make time to read them), and then I rejoined when I had more time to spare. I have had stron...

Re: WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR CRETE POST CONVID-19

A ‘pipe dream’ evansmr. - No large manufacturing base, no major financial services industry, few natural resources, and even with a government that isn’t corrupt.......a crippling debt.

As much as I wish things were otherwise, I cannot ever see Greece becoming self sufficient.

Re: Alarming rise in cases on Crete.

I understand the test and trace is not efficient unless it achieves 80% of its target. To repeat what I wrote earlier, “SOME people can be selfish.” In fact two people were taken off a flight from the U.K. to Italy this evening. They boarded a flight to go on holiday knowing that they had Covid 19. ...

Re: Alarming rise in cases on Crete.

The virus is spread from person to person, or from an infected person to a surface and then on to another person. The more people meet others, or travel around touching items, the greater the chance of the virus being transmitted. - It is not rocket science. Governments know this, but they have to b...

Re: WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR CRETE POST CONVID-19

Yes John, I think we are a long time off an effective vaccine just yet. I agree with Jean though, that Crete is probably better off than most of Greece. We live in very uncertain times.

Re: WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR CRETE POST CONVID-19

This is a world crisis. It is the youth that will suffer everywhere. One thing in Greece’s favour is that education is still seen as beneficial, and most children want to go to school and learn. This means that higher education is sought after, and the young people who achieve this have the benefit ...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

A very informative post altohb. I am sure it will be useful to others. Personal experience wins over other forms of information every day! You can see evansmr that some people fly back to Kriti, as well as away from it. Guy’s original post was just informing everyone of his experience. Broadening th...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

If you find the thread boring evansmr might I politely suggest you just ignore it? Shutting it down would be a shame for all the useful posts on it......regarding filling in the PLF etc. I think with all the uncertainty when visiting countries just now, it is good to have as much information from fe...

It has made regular news headlines in the U.K. since the Limnos incident Guy, especially once Macron offered more naval support.

Re: Flying Crete - UK

This is not about a ‘blame game’ Chrssyg. If you believe so, then you are misjudging the situation. Guy is correct, not all young people are going to parties and raves. His well brought up daughters clearly know better.....and are also not in the late teens/early twenties age group that are attendin...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Sorry Warwick, you took me too literally there! It was herd immunity through vaccination that eradicated smallpox. As you are aware, it is a term used for vaccination as well as immunity through infection. What scares me is the thought of uncontrolled spread of a virus to achieve it! I also saw the ...
