Iliopoulos: The Government Is Acting Without a Plan

ATHENS — Τhe government is proceeding without a plan and without taking the necessary heath protection and economic measures to support the reopening of social activities, stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos, speaking to ANT1 TV on Monday.

"We are not worried about the opening of tourism but by the fact that Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is behaving like a tourist," said Iliopoulos. At the same time, he said it was self-evident that a series of economic activities must reopen, as Greece had been subjected to a "strange and failed lockdown," and "it is clear that we could not continue this way."

He criticised the government for its management of the crisis, saying that "since October, when we entered the second wave of the pandemic, we have over 11,000 dead and this happened because the government had never essentially prepared for the second wave".
