Coronavirus: From 300 to 500 euros the fine for those who violate the measures.
From 300 to 500 euros increases the fine for those who violate the measures against the spread of the coronavirus.
The increase of the fine to all those who violate measures against the coronavirus was announced by the Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis from Parliament today.
In particular, in view of the possible opening of the market, the government decided to toughen its stance, in order not to increase the number of cases due to non-compliance with the measures.
Specifically, as the Prime Minister said, “the fine for offenders, for those who consciously insist on violating the measures, will be increased, from 300 euros to 500. In this way. we can revive the economy without endangering health by a third pandemic wave “. He explained that the decision was made because “any exposure to economic activity carries the risk of an increase in cases”. “As long as this increase in cases is reasonable and controlled and as long as it does not put pressure on the Health System, it is something we can endure. It is these difficult balances that we must find. “So, if the experts consider that this risk is reasonable and if they suggest that we should go to a gradual opening of the retail trade, we are ready to implement it from Monday”, he added.
