GREECE has imposed a strict midnight curfew on its holiday islands, after the country recorded the highest number of new daily coronavirus infections since the start of the pandemic.

Bars and restaurants in Mykonos, Santorini, Corfu, Rhodes, Zakynthos and Crete will be closed from midnight to 7 a.m., according to the Greek government.

With the cities of Thessaloniki, Larissa, Volos and Katerini also affected by the curfew, this will be in place from today until August 23.

Greece registered 203 new cases Sunday, the highest since the start of the pandemic, with a total of 5,749 cases.

Meanwhile, Britons with reusable masks will not be able to board flights to France due to strict regulations imposed by the government.

According to French regulations, only disposable masks are allowed on flights, although reusable blankets are deemed safe by the majority of airlines.

It comes as deaths reached 46,595 after another 21 deaths were recorded.
