Tsipras: Despite Government Claims, Pandemic & Price Hikes Seem to Be on the Rise

November 26, 2021

ATHENS – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his government are precipitating the acceleration of the coronavirus health crisis and price hikes, said SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance Alexis Tsipras in the city of Larissa on Thursday.

Citing a report by the Greek Confederation of Workers’ (GSEE) Labor Institute (INE), Tsipras said that Greece will register a lower GDP in 2021 than in 2019.

Only a few days ago, added the main opposition party leader, Mitsotakis claimed that the pandemic is under control, “yet dozens of our fellow citizens perish to the coronavirus every day.” Likewise, Mitsotakis says that price hikes are temporary, “yet prices in basic goods are skyrocketing, without any visible stop.”

“Mitsotakis is characterized by a distrinct lack of understanding for Greek society’s drama,” Tsipras said.


ATHENS - The General Secretariat for Civil Protection on Friday urged the public to be particularly careful and to protect themselves against potential dangers as a result of the intense weather phenomena expected this weekend, starting late on Friday night.
