Greek PM Mitsotakis to annnounce easing of measures

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is to announce the easing of measures put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus in a speech to the nation on Tuesday, Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas said. 

Small shops including hairdressers will be among the first shops to reopen, Petsas said, adding that churches would follow at a later unspecified date. 

Bank ATMs are to start operating at migrant reception centers from next week in a bid to limit the movements of residents outside the facilities, he added.
