Tsirpas Expresses Concern Over Pandemic Developments

December 14, 2021

ATHENS – SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras on Tuesday expressed his concern over the developments with the pandemic as well as the local authority’s role in the common effort to intercept it, at a teleconference with the Central Union of Municipalities of Greece in the context of the series of meetings with agencies “on the necessary measures to address the pandemic”.

According to party sources, Tsipras expressed his concern over the variant Omicron which may probably create the conditions of a fifth wave during Christmas holidays.

They also discussed other municipality problems which have intensified in the last period as they are facing, as everyone else, the repercussions of the health crisis in the economy as well as on the energy crisis with tremendous price hikes, mostly in energy.
