Greece has called for residents to stay home and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Business Insider reports that many are flocking to local islands.

Authorities have banned all visitors from traveling to the islands by ferry on Saturday.

This move was inspired by fear due to the islands' lack of resources to deal with contagion.

Greece later instituted a nationwide lockdown effective Monday, March 23rd.

It restricts all non-essential travel and gatherings.

Residents must now carry their ID and an official form when leaving home and will be surveilled by drones.
