Iliopoulos Accuses Government of Having Lost Control of the Pandemic

ATHENS — "The Mitsotakis government has not only completely lost control of the pandemic, but also the trust of society," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said late on Tuesday in an interview with Ionian TV.

Iliopoulos said that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis "first said that we have defeated the coronavirus on April 30 last year, while this year on March 4 he stated that we are entering the final stretch in the battle. Despite this, after five months of restrictive measures, since November, we are mourning more than 7,900 of our fellow citizens."

He accused the government of refusing to support the national health system, noting that "compared to last year, there are 1,680 fewer permanent employees and the state budget for health was reduced by 600 million euros."

"The three main health policy mistakes of New Democracy are that it did not pursue an aggressive policy for testing, namely through their mass free prescription, and did not take measures for workplaces and public transport," he added.
