  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Greek islands have UK green list hopes as vaccination plan gets under way” – below is their description.

    Greece has pledged to fully vaccinate the population of its 6,000 islands by the end June in a bid to boost tourism.

    The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has already declared the Greek Islands of Rhodes, Kos, Zakynthos, Corfu and Crete safe for travel in a further indication that Greece’s islands, at least, could be promoted from the amber to the green list at the next review in less than three weeks.

    However, The Telegraph understands that despite promising data, mainland Greece, along with Spain and France, might not be green-listed until July or even August under the UK Government’s cautious approach to re-opening – and nor could their islands.
