Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is to announce the easing of measures put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus in a speech to the nation on Tuesday at a 6 p.m., government spokesman Stelios Petsas said.

The announcement is to be followed by separate briefings by different ministers, he said.

According to press reports, the lifting of restrictions will begin on May 4 with the opening of small retail stores, including hairdressers and beauty salons.
