Thousands of people headed to the New Promenade of Thessaloniki as local authorities reopened the city’s popular waterfront area on Monday evening, as COVID-19 restrictions eased on the region.
Footage shows people strolling, exercising and relaxing at the popular waterfront area after the Thessaloniki authorities announced the reopening of the area, after almost a month of closure amid the social restrictions imposed to curb the COVID-19 outbreak.
Greek authorities will reportedly start easing the measures put in place to combat the pandemic, which resulted in 2,534 confirmed cases and 136 related deaths in Greece as of Monday night according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
