SYRIZA’s Iliopoulos Accuses Government of Unsuccessful Management of the Pandemic

January 15, 2021

ATHENS — Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos, in an interview with "Flash TV" in Kozani late on Thursday, spoke of a government incapable of even rudimentary self-criticism over its unsuccessful management of the pandemic and its financial repercussions.

"In two and a half months, we have mourned more than 4,700 of our fellow human beings," he said, adding that the restrictive measures alone are not sufficient. He stressed that they need to be reinforced with measures that substantially strengthen the public health system and protection of employees.

"The government cannot address the serious gaps that exist in the hospitals of Northern Greece, transferring doctors from Attica or other areas, because it refuses to requisition private clinics," said Iliopoulos.
