The virus that you describe exists in Greece at this time. Approx 150 people have been infected, most of them in nothern Greece. There is not a problem in the islands. I have visited Santorini many times and opposite to other islands, there are very few mosquitoes there.
Despite all that, it is better to be safe and take precautions...
Thanks a lot.
Bring repellant anyway. Despite how dry Santorini is, there ARE mosquitoes there as well as tiny 'no-see-ums' that bite.
i despise the no-see-ums and they love me!
Anyway, bring repellent and also it may be handy to buy a plug in repellent from a supermarket once you arrive so your hotel room will be mosquito free during the night too!
