There are no cases of Covid-19 in Karpathos

In the last few days, journalists in Greece have classified Karpathos as "red" in terms of coronary cases on our island.

This news is a big lie. Today, Saturday, 22 - May - 2021, there is no reported case in Karpathos. At the same time, the citizens of Karpathos of all ages vaccinated at a rapid rate. Today over 70% of the population of our island has been vaccinated.

In Karpathos since the beginning of the Pandemic we have never exceeded one hundred cases.  It should be noted here, that the stable population of Karpathos is about 5000 - 5500 people.

As a doctor certified by the National Organization of Public Health, I would like to tell you that Karpathos currently has no cases of the virus and you can visit our island safely without a second thought.


INFORMATION FOR RAPID & PCR TEST... in our Clinic in Karpathos



It is very important to know 1 week before your departure date for your country, so that we can inform you about the exact date and time when the test will take place.

The next day afternoon from the date of receiving the test, your payment receipt and your results will come to your e-mail.

If you want the answer of the result printed, then you can do it either in your Hotel or visit our Clinic.


 RAPID – Antigen TEST

For the rapid test again we should be informed a week in advance. The test takes place 24 hours before departure and the response takes 15 minutes.



PCR TEST: 70 euros

RAPID TEST: 20 euros



We do not charge extra for tests taken at the Hotels


 Payment must be made in cash, because the money must be deposited in the Bank for the Microbiological laboratory in Rhodes.


 We send the tests to a special Microbiological Laboratory in Rhodes by ship. The transfer of the test with airplane is forbidden because the test was considered infectious material.


 I wish you a happy holiday on our beautiful island and also a beautiful stay in the beautiful and friendly hotel you have chosen.

Our aim is to treat the patient on the island, and not the evacuation of the patient away from the island for a health problem.
The correct diagnosis and quick and secure treatment is our trump.
The patient should not be wasting time of his vacation because he got sick in any circumstances.
The tourists enjoying their holidays and we care about their health.

Home - Hotel visits in remote areas like Leykos...

 There are arid and remote areas in Karpathos, including Leykos, where there are no clinics or pharmacies. If a visitor needs medical assistance by calling the doctor will come to the hotel in about 40 minutes. Because In Leykos,  there are no pharmacies, doctor Socrates -after telephone consultation with the patient (depending on the health problem)- keeps appropriate medicines with him and so the patient does not have to hassle of looking for a pharmacy.

Notification for high-risk patients or patients requiring special supervision


In case there are patients with complicated health history and who receive special medications, or there will be the possibility to need sometimes emergency help, it would be good to provide the medical history to us, in order to be ready – stand by.

For your safety it would be good to know your medical history…before you start to enjoy your holidays on the island.
