Oikonomou: We’ll Do Everything in Our Power to Open Schools Safely on Jan 10

December 30, 2021

ATHENS – “We will do everything in our power to open the schools safely on January 10,” government spokesman Yiannis Oikonomou said on Thursday in an interview with ANT1 TV.

According to Oikonomou, the government is monitoring the every day situation, adding that everyone is on alert. He did not rule out the modification of the protocols if this is suggested by the experts.

Referring to those affected by the pandemic, he said that the government will not leave anyone alone.

Oikonomou said that the fatigue – because the pandemic has lasted for about two years – has created anger for different things.

“It is perfectly normal. There is no decision to deal with the pandemic that is enjoyable after two years. It is not just here, it is all over the world. Hundreds of thousands of cases in France, tens of thousands in Portugal, Germany, everywhere.”

“When things change so rapidly, you need to adapt quickly, even the next day,” he underlined.


OSLO, Norway — A gunman opened fire in Oslo's night-life district early Saturday, killing two people and leaving 10 seriously wounded in what police are investigating as a possible terrorist attack during the Norwegian capital's annual Pride festival.
