Week 13-20/04/2020 – Easter amid the pandemic


This Easter was different for the Greeks since the celebrations took place amid the coronavirus pandemic. What is more, the lockdown measures got much stricker during the past week. All the citizens, though, exhibited discipline and there were very few violations of the measures. The traditional celebrations that always brought together friends and members of the extended family as well as the packed churches were replaced by small home gatherings and live streaming of church services.
