Next week, measures implemented in Attica and elsewhere will be assessed in order to see if they are effective or not, government spokesman Stelios Petsas said today stressing the need for their respect by all. “We will first see how the measures work and then we will see if we can do more. There are already a lot of measures that we have taken,” government spokesman Stelios Petsas said, speaking on the channel this Saturday morning on the Open TV station about the spread of the coronavirus, the effectiveness of the measures and the next steps of the government.
“At this stage, it seems that there are persistent confluences whether in social protection units such as retirement homes, which is criminal in relation to the responsibilities we all have especially towards our most vulnerable fellow citizens or in workplaces “like the Skydra factory” “said Mr. Petsas while highlighting” the sources of concern in areas with a high epidemiological load which do not seem to disappear quickly for example the area from Trikala, the Pieria area and the center of Athens.
Regarding the closure of food stores at 10 p.m. Mr Petsas pointed out that if this happens there will be more collusion. “The experts will tell us,” he noted. For possible lockdown in Attica, the government spokesman said it would be a dramatic scenario to quadruple the cases. “There is no exponential increase in cases in Attica and that makes us moderately optimistic,” he said. “We are not talking about new measures, we want to assess existing ones,” said Stelios Petsas, who stressed that there is a mandatory use of the mask outdoors but that we are not yet in such a phase.
