January 29, 2021

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".
