Iliopoulos: “Self Test Shambles” Shows Gov’t Has Lost Control of the Pandemic

ATHENS — "The 'executive confusion' over the self tests demonstrates once again that we have a government that has lost control of the pandemic but has also lost the trust of society," main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance's spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said on Thursday on "Sto Kokkino" radio station.

He noted that "for a very long time the entire scientific community has been calling for an aggressive policy on testing," which he clarified "means prescribing tests and not turning tests into a matter of personal responsibility." Based on the complaints of pharmacists, Iliopoulos added, "the tests provided by the government are tests that a citizen cannot do on his own."

Iliopoulos stressed that SYRIZA insists on the prescription of PCR tests, "which ruling New Democracy (ND) has refused."
