November 25, 2020

ATHENS — Citizen Protection Michalis Chrisochoidis on Wednesday stressed the need for determination and absolute compliance with the health measures proposed by experts in order to effectively deal with the new wave of the coronavirus.

The minister was visiting the area of Drama.

"We need to tighten controls for the implementation of the measures to counter the few unconscientious or foolish individuals who propagate conspiracy theories, with the result that we are all now faced with the consequences," Chrisochoidis stressed.

"This joint effort will enable the health system to have a 10-day margin so that it can manage this crisis now facing the city of Drama," he noted, adding: "We will manage all the issues together. We will be at the forefront. We have a lot of strength, we have determination and we want to work together to stop the virus."
