Police officers from Greece were put into quarantine after an incident that took place in Athens where a man claiming to be infected with coronavirus had spat in their faces.
A 26-year-old man who has recently returned from London was arrested yesterday in Voula in the south of Athens for breaking car mirrors. While he was being apprehended, he spat in the officers’ faces after telling them that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
The charges against him are, among other things, breaking the obligation of a 14-day self-isolation period.
Greece currently has 624 confirmed cases of coronavirus, with the total number of victims being 14. The country has induced a state of lockdown to attempt to contain the spread of the virus. Starting today leaving the house without a permit is restricted, warranting a €150 fine.
