Iliopoulos: The Gov’t Left Greece Unprepared for the Second Wave of the Pandemic

November 20, 2020

ATHENS — "The government left the country unnprepared for the second wave of the pandemic and is putting the blame on others," stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nasos Iliopoulos in an interview late Thursday with DELTA TV, a television channel in Thrace.

"Currently we have 6,000 fewer employees in the public health system than last year and we are the only country that reopened schools with more pupils per classroom in the midst of the pandemic, while throughout northern Greece there consistently appear superspreader clusters of the virus in work places, without there being the necessary checks for the health and safety of employees," underlined Iliopoulos.

On the developments for the vaccine, Iliopoulos said that "we wish for it to come as soon as possible, but even if it arrived tomorrow, we know from the scientists that the battle with the virus will last many months".
