The total amount reached the sum of 2,603,700 euros.

It is noted that most violations occurred in Attica, followed by Thessaloniki, the Ionian Islands, and Western Greece.

As for the operation of stores, despite the relevant ban, a total of 330 violations were confirmed by April 3 and a fine of 5,000 euros was imposed on each one of them. Thus, the total amount of fines for these violations reaches 1,650,000 euros.

A significant part of the amount collected from the fines will be allocated in favor of strengthening the country’s National Health System.
