Let us pause for thought for a moment regarding the British reactions to force quarantine on returning British holiday makers from #Greece.
The British health authorities in charge of handling the Covid-19 outbreak it is believed use a benchmark figure of 20 cases per thousand tested positive cases to raise alarm and take emegency action to slow the spread of the virus. Greece however is currently hovering around the 13-14 cases per thousand. This is well below the threshhold level to trigger extra concern used in Britain.
What has changed in the UK decision makers’ minds to penalise those who choose the Greek Islands as their holiday destination?
Just asking as a layman.
