Peloni: We Are Fighting the Final Battles in a War Already Won

ATHENS — Peloni also referred to the vaccinations and self tests, underlining that "we are fighting the final battles in a war that has already been won by science and it necessary to be patient and cover the last kilometres of the marathon. It is already proven that vaccination can end the ordeal," she said in her briefing on Monday.

Roughly 1.5 million vaccinations is expected to be carried out in April, while in May and June we will have even more vaccines. From today the average number of vaccinations a day is expected to exceed 50,000. Meanwhile, the vaccination centres have increased to 1,073 in number, or 55 more than the 1,018 initially announced, and the government is ready for more vaccinations depending on the number of vaccines that arrive in Greece.

She also referred to the self tests which are offered for free, four every month, to all citizens.
