Anastasiades Attempted to Quell Concerns over the Decision to Reopen All Public Schools

NICOSIA — Cyprus’ president attempted to quell concerns over the decision to reopen all public schools on May 21, saying it will depend on how well the country keeps the virus at bay.

President Nicos Anastasiades says he’ll take the advice of a team of medical experts. He says the government would never be “complicit in regressive” actions that would enable the virus to flourish and endanger public health.

Some Cypriots questioned why the government would opt to reopen schools for five weeks and risk a flareup of infections. Others attributed the move to pressure from the business community to free parents from taking care of kids at home and allowing them back to work.


NICOSIA - Cyprus' new government is not pushing for the stalled East Med pipeline to connect energy resources to mainland Greece via the island and Crete, now wanting to be a conduit for Liquefied Natural Gas instead.
