Due to the strong earthquake in Samos, Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ speech for measures for the coronavirus is postponed. The Prime Minister’s new message to citizens with the additional measures to deal with the spread of the coronavirus was scheduled for 3:00 p.m. Friday noon.
However, after the strong earthquake off Samos, Maximou informed that the sermon will not be held at this time, without giving information on when it will eventually take place. The 6.7 magnitude earthquake, centered on Samos, was felt in many parts of Greece.
Residents of the island have taken to the streets in panic, amid fears of destruction of buildings. Serious damage was also caused in Smyrna, based on the first images and information transmitted by Turkish media.
