From Colleen McGuire in Greece:
My friend of 20 years is from the Greek island of Santorini. Today he told me he has two friends, both of whose parents recently died from heart attacks. They were both offered free funeral services and money if they agreed for the deaths to be designated as covid. They both refused. My other Santorini friend said he knows people who have experienced this too.
In September, the woman who is caretaker for my partner’s mother in Patra (3rd largest Greece city) said her uncle died of heart problems and their family was offered money to put covid on the birth certificate. She refused. She was agitated just telling the story.
