Tsipras Calls on PM to Apologise for Policy on ICU

September 28, 2022

ATHENS – Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday commented on the findings of a report by public health professor Theodoros Lytras, calling on the prime minister to apologise for his policy on ICUs during the Covid pandemic peak in a post on Twitter.

“They said ‘ICUs are a waste of money’ and the [prime minister] challenged us ‘to bring me one study showing that [patients] die outside of ICUs’. Now that the studies show that almost no one survived outside of an ICU will he at least apologise? Not to us but to the thousands that were needlessly lost,” Tsipras said.


ATHENS - Greece’s ruling New Democracy party, which said it would veto Albania’s hopes of joining the European Union over the jailing of Fredi Beleri, the elected Mayor of Himare, put him on its list of candidates for the European Parliament.
