Mitsotakis Reschedules Address to the Nation about the Pandemic to Saturday

October 30, 2020

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will address the nation about the coronavirus pandemic on Saturday, the Greek premier announced himself on social media on Friday.

The prime minister's televised speech that was scheduled for Friday and expected to include more measures for the pandemic was postponed after an earthquake measuring 6.7 on the Richter scale struck the Samos island region and coastal Turkey on Friday afternoon.

On Twitter, Mitsotakis wrote: "Samos endured. A government team is heading to the island to deal with problems there. I am constantly briefed about the situation and I call on the island's residents to stay alert during potential follow-up tremors. The announcements about the pandemic will take place tomorrow."
