Greece to open some beaches ahead of heat wave

AP , Wednesday 13 May 2020

Greece will allow the reopening of some beaches Saturday when a heat wave is expected to hit the country.

The Civil Protection Agency says the measure would affect 515 beaches in Greece, where shade umbrellas must be planted at least 4 meters (13 feet) apart, and a maximum 40 people will be allowed per 1,000 square meters of beach.

It's part of the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions in the country.

On Wednesday, health officials announced 16 confirmed infections and three more deaths, bringing the total to 2,760 and 155, respectively.
