SYRIZA accuses prime minister of incompetence

“For so long, (Prime Minister Kyriakos) Mitsotakis has been ignoring the proposals of SYRIZA and the scientists for measures to stop the pandemic, in order to prevent new losses and the possibility of a new catastrophic lockdown”, main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance underlined in an announcement on Tuesday.

“With a record of 9,284 cases yesterday, he again refused to do what he was supposed to do: He did not say anything about providing free rapid and molecular tests for citizens, increasing public transport, changing the protocols at schools, strengthening the national health system, requisitioning private clinics and expanding teleworking.”
