A relevant civil protection deputy minister said 1.3 SMS messages had been received by a platform to issue approval to people wishing to move in public around Greece for specific reasons, amid a "lockdown" in place to reduce exposure to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Conversely, 766 fines were issued to people violating the curfew.  

On a more positive note, opening hours for grocery stores were rolled back, while they will again close on Sundays, a sign that hoarding and "panic buying" is not commonplace and that the internal supply chain is sufficiently operating.
