Zakynthos:- British tourists continue to ignore strict measures for the protection of Covid-19. (video)

British tourists once again gathered at the beach in Lagana to party on, ignoring the strict measures that have been introduced for the safety of our citizens and visitors.

Businesses in the area emphasize that a lot of  tourists completely ignore the measures of protection.  Whereas the businesses in the area have from the beginning of the season taken all the measures required to ensure a safe environment.

Efforts by local tourism agencies to save the tourist year were almost marred by dozens of reports in the British press – in turn the Greek media  – in regards to British tourists on their return to their homeland,  tested positive for the coronavirus.

As we can see in the video below as soon as the shops were closed a mob decided to carry on their entertainment on the beach front. We remind you that this is also a National Marine Park area. Police over loud speaker asked them to disperse and go to their hotels. Their calls fell on deaf ears.
