Iliopoulos Accuses Government of Losing Control of the Pandemic

ATHENS — "The New Democracy (ND) government has lost control of the pandemic through its own choices and at the same time has lost the trust of society," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said on Monday in an interview 90.4 FM radio station.

Speaking about the self tests, he said that from the minutes of the committee published the previous day, it appeared that "there was no health recommendation from them but it was a decision that the government had 'pushed upon' the committee of experts".

He added that "according to the European health committee, self tests can only be used as a complementary tool, as they give a large percentage of false negative results in asymptomatic carriers".

Iliopoulos stated that "for five months now we have been in a lockdown which clearly does not work, as from November until today we have mourned 8,836 of our fellow citizens," and that "after so many months of a failed lockdown, the signs of psychological fatigue in the citizens are now obvious."
