Petsas: Opening Retail Market Next Monday “Almost Impossible”

ATHENS — The current epidemiological data makes it almost impossible to reopen the retail market next Monday, Deputy Interior Minister Stelios Petsas said on Tuesday in an interview with Skai TV.

"No one can endure such a prolonged lockdown. We want to gradually return to some form of normalcy, but not at the expense of public health. Because, public health and the economy go together," he stressed.

Petsas pointed out that the government will proceed with the requisitioning of additional health services and beds, if necessary, while responding to the opposition's accusations of a delay in taking relevant initiatives, he noted that the requisitioning of beds and services is not free but has a cost.



ANKARA — Turkey's central bank on Thursday lowered its key interest rate despite inflation surging to nearly 80% and making it difficult for people to buy what they need, falling in line with the unorthodox economic views of the country's president.
