Iliopoulos: The New Lockdown Is a “Government Acceptance of Failure”

ATHENS — The new lockdown is "a government acceptance of failure," SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance's spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos said on Sunday in an interview with 'Kontra News', while claiming that the government's plan for the pandemic "proves to be a parody".

Iliopoulos said that the people on the front lines have been asking for tests to be prescribed for a year now, for private clinics to be involved in tackling the pandemic, for inspections to be carried out at workplaces and for public transport routes to be increased, but "a year later what is the government doing?"

"It is taking stricter measures for personal movement, while giving no solution to the problems in the means of public transport, which is the main issue," he said adding that no health protection measures have been taken in workplaces and the health system has been converted into a system of one disease and scheduled surgeries are cancelled.


ATHENS - As headquarters of the European Union’s Red Sea Naval Mission to keep Yemeni Houthis from attacking ships - led by Commodore Vasileios Gryparis - Greece also is looking to become a key player in aiding security of the 27 member state bloc.
