Mitsotakis: Relaxation in Restrictions Cannot Bring Relaxation in Vigilance

ATHENS — "Relaxation in restrictions cannot, must not, lead to a relaxation in vigilance," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said during introductory comments at a meeting of ruling New Democracy's parliamentary group, adding that the goal is to reach a "safe Easter but and an even freer summer".

"The threat remains," the prime minister said, while noting that the country was now "going through, as everything indicates, the last but also the most sensitive phase of the pandemic."

According to the prime minister, there were "three allies and one opponent," in this journey, of which two were the self-tests and vaccinations, while government reforms were the third, especially the labour bill currently under preparation.

He also spoke about the meeting he had earlier with the head of the Libyan Presidential Council, reporting "a fruitful discussion in the context of a really new chapter in the relations between the two states."

Referring to the self-tests, Mitsotakis noted that these were "an important additional defense weapon next to the rest – masks, social distancing, personal hygiene – while he called the vaccinations "a serious bridge toward the wall of immunity which is built at a fast pace."
