The civil protection service on Skopelos in the name of municipal board president Angelos Xidaris has announced tonight that on the island more than ten people are infected with the corona virus. In the message the villages of Glossa and Elios are mentioned but we cannot rule out any part of the island where people live including Skopelos town.

This is the message I received from the vice mayor via an email. First in Greek than translated by me.

About the general lockdown in Greece
The Greek government extended until 6 a.m. on December 7 the restrictive measures imposed to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in the country, as the number of deaths and intubations remained persistently high three weeks into a nationwide lockdown.

Speaking at a regular press conference on Thursday, government spokesman Stelios Petsas said the move is necessary as the viral load in the country remains high.

“Especially in some areas, such as Thessaloniki, Serres, Larissa, Etoloakarnania, Lesvos and Achaia, this burden is a source of concern,” he told the press.
