Greek Health Min: Satisfactory “Wall of Immunity” in the Summer

ATHENS — Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias, in an interview with the Greek Herald of Australia, expressed his certainty that Greece will be able to build a satisfactory 'wall of immunity' during the summer if deliveries from the pharmaceutical companies arrive on schedule, as all the vaccines that come to the country are immediately sent to the vaccination centres.

Kikilias emphasised that the increase in vaccination coverage does not mean that protection measures, such as the wearing of face masks, observing distances and washing hands, can be dispensed with. "We should not let our guard down because the pandemic is still here," he said.

According to Kikilias, the success of the "Eleftheria" vaccine rollout is due to the total readiness of the state mechanism and of course to the medical staff in hospitals and vaccination centres. " In this way we are introducing a new culture for how the state offers its services to the citizen," he added.


ATHENS - US Ambassador George Tsunis added to a list of those lauding Greece’s recovery from a 2010-18 financial and austerity crisis, calling it an “economic miracle,” that is seeing investors from the United States and world jumping in.
