Georgiadis: Prices on Disposable Masks Have Dropped

ATHENS – "The prices on the masks have dropped. Adequacy has been ensured. Checks are carried out. The stocks are recorded. An electronic application on the mobile phone was made so that citizens can find the cheapest mask in their area," Development and Investment Minister Adonis Georgiadis said on Wednesday addressing the Parliament.

He also submitted figures showing that prices on disposable masks are declining, after the recent increases due to higher demand globally.

According to the Consumer General Secretariat's price list, cited by the minister, prices on disposable masks range from 0.59 to 0.63 cents in one supermarket chain, from 0.27 to 0.42 cents in another supermarket chain and in a third one from 0.56 to 0.58.


ATHENS - The issues to be addressed by Thursday's cabinet meeting also concern the government's overall effort to improve the daily life of citizens, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in his opening remarks to ministers, at the start of the meeting.
