Peloni: Concern about Attica Was Being Expressed by Health Experts

January 29, 2021

ATHENS — "We are proceeding step by step. The data are evaluated every week. We are waiting for the final recommendation of the committee," alternate government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni said on Friday in an interview with Parapolitika radio station.

She said that concern about Attica was being expressed by experts and members of the committee.

"We intervene whenever this is necessary. We want to be one step ahead. If Attica becomes 'red', we will examine what rules will be applied. Attica, due to its size, is a special case and it may not be possible to apply specific restrictive measures that could have the opposite effect," she said, noting, among other things, that a curfew starting at 18:00, for example, could cause worse congestion.

Peloni noted that Greece has an good epidemiological picture overall and is one of the few countries in Europe where there are still "green" areas.

Regarding schools, she said that there is a relevant suggestion of the committee from last Friday and that, if the committee deems that there should be corrective changes, these will be carried out.
