Peloni: Gov’t Striving to Make Citizens’ Fatigue “Manageable”, Not Ending Lockdown

ATHENS — "Firstly, no one said we were coming out of the lockdown. There has been a misunderstanding in the last few days. A roadmap is being presented on which are the government's priorities with respect to restricted activities when and if the data permits a controlled and gradual resumption of activities, in phases. Nobody said we were coming out," government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni said on Wednesday, in an interview with Action 24 "Evening Report".

"No one is ignoring the spike recorded but, at the same time, we must not overlook the fact that compliance with the measures is partial and that measures must therefore be found that enable us to manage the fatigue of the citizens, which is evident on all levels," she said.

She stressed that a "golden mean" will be sought if the numbers permit this and that the final assessment will be made by the health experts' committee, which evaluates the data on a daily basis and intervenes where necessary.
