Theodorikakos: Police Officers Do Not Constitute a Danger for the Citizens

December 20, 2021

ATHENS – “Eighty-one percent of the police officers are vaccinated or have certificates of recovery. The citizens should know that police officers do not constitute a danger for the citizens,” underlined Citizen Protection Minister Takis Theodorikakos on Monday, in answer to main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance deputy Christos Spirtzis in parliament.

Theodorikakos said that according to the figures of the Greek Police headquarters, 75 percent of the police officers were fully vaccinated, six percent have been infected and three percent got the first dose of a vaccine by December 2. Those who are not yet considered fully vaccinated (i.e. 14 days after completing vaccination) are required to do two rapid tests a week.

“The citizens should feel completely safe,” he said, adding that from Monday 10,000 police officers will be conducting checks to ensure compliance of the rules against the pandemic.


ATHENS - Just in time for the coming summer tourism season as Greece hopes millions will pour in during the lingering COVID-19 pandemic is the phenomenon again of purple jellyfish in parts of the Aegean, who are big and bring a big sting too.
