Georgiadis: Greek Market Will Keep Operating, Even if Attica Is Pronounced a “Red Zone”

ATHENS — Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis on Friday said that the market in Attica will continue to operate, even if the region is pronounced a red zone in terms of pandemic figures. Speaking to ANT1 TV, Georgiadis said that the market must stay open but will operate with protective measures, shortly before attending a meeting of the pandemic experts' committee.

"I have a meeting with the committee, we will have a lengthy discussion and they will present their arguments," Georgiadis said, adding that if they decide that Attica must be declared a 'red zone' then additional measures will be imposed. "There is a plan at the ministry," he added.

Asked if schools will open in Attica on Monday, he said that these decisions are taken at higher level. On the possibility of a curfew starting at 18:00 in Attica, he replied: "My opinion is that Attica has the particularity of being half the country".



ATHENS  - Floods that wiped out much of Greece’s agricultural heartland of Thessaly and blocked roads, keeping off trucks carrying goods have combined with inflation to make basic foods too expensive for many families.
