Greek islands aim to go 'Covid-free' to welcome back tourists – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Greece’s islands have an ambitious plan to lure back visitors this summer – by vaccinating all local residents.

In 2020, the country welcomed only 25% of its usual numbers of visitors.

The goal of “Operation Blue Freedom” is to turn the country’s islands, such as Milos, into “Covid-free” travel destinations.

Many of Milos’ locals rely on tourism and welcome the plan to reopen. But not everyone is as optimistic.

46. (Have they not journeyed through the earth, and had hearts to reason with, or ears to listen with?)

Say: "Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: for Allah has power over all things.)

"Thou seest the mountains and thinkest them firmly fixed: but they shall pass away as the clouds pass away: (such is) the artistry of Allah, who disposes of all things in perfect order: for he is well acquainted with all that ye do.)

Covid free, and allowing people to freely come and go from your country doesnt sound like a recipe for staying covid free for very long.

Have a spare $1? Savin' to get a laptop (homejob). No opportunities outside due to constant lockdowns in our country. 😷 Sorry for this. 😳 I'm not a bad person, just a desperate breadwinner. Lost a lot since 2020.

Prayers and well-wishes are also very much appreciated. 😇❤

Off-topic, I know… I hope you understand the desperation.  I know some people need more help than me and my family but I do hope that does not invalidate my cry for help. 😢 

Things are getting worse here. We don't have stimulus checks or anything like USA. So I'm just really doing whatever I can to put food on the table. We may not be killed by the virus but the situation is surely slowly killing us. 💔 

Peace be with you. GOD bless. 🙏❤

And to anyone who's also struggling, let's hold on tight. All will soon be well. 🌹🌹🌹

The example of [this] worldly life is but like rain which We have sent down from the sky that the plants of the earth absorb – [those] from which men and livestock eat – until, when the earth has taken on its adornment and is beautified and its people suppose that they have capability over it, there comes to it Our command by night or by day, and We make it as a harvest, as if it had not flourished yesterday. Thus do We explain in detail the signs for a people who give thought.

"It's better to be a LION for a day, than a sheep all your life."

– Bushido (Warrior's Way)

Revelation 20
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and JUDGMENT was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had NOT worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

“But the rest of the dead lived NOT again until the THOUSAND YEARS were FINISHED. This is the FIRST RESURRECTION.”

“BLESSED and holy is he that hath part in the FIRST RESURRECTION: on such the SECOND DEATH (Lake of Fire in Hell) hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall REIGN with him a THOUSAND YEARS!”

Revelation 2
"Remember therefore from whence thou art FALLEN, and REPENT, and do the FIRST WORKS; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will REMOVE thy candlestick out of his place, except thou REPENT!"

"Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the Devil shall cast some of you into PRISON, that ye may be TRIED; and ye shall have Tribulation ten days: be thou FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH, and I will give thee a Crown of Life."

"He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death."

"And I gave her SPACE TO REPENT of her fornication; and she repented NOT!"

"BEHOLD… I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into GREAT TRIBULATION, except they REPENT of their deeds."

"And I will kill HER CHILDREN with DEATH; and ALL the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto EVERYONE of you according to your WORKS."

"And he that OVERCOMETH, and KEEPETH MY WORKS unto the end, to him will I give Power OVER the Nations!"

"And he SHALL RULE THEM with a ROD OF IRON; as the vessels of a potter shall they be BROKEN TO SHIVERS: even as I received of my Father."

How can Covid be in Greece? This is nonsense. Greece is the best country in the whole world. The Ancient Greeks cured Covid thousands of years ago.
