Show Notes

Cyprus is conducting a thorough surveillance campaign in order to stymie the spread of COVID-19. If residents leave the house, they must send a text message to a government-monitored phone number; the government has made different numbers available depending on the reason for leaving the house. Each message grants a three-hour pass, and residents are only allowed to leave the house up to two times per day for a total of six hours. Listen as Valentina describes these lockdowns and more.
