The government is expected to announce a tough lockdown in the coming days in prefectures of Northern Greece. This means that New Year’s Eve and gatherings of 9 people will be banned on Christmas and New Year. The target is areas that have not shown an improvement in their epidemiological picture despite the strict measures that have been implemented in the last 1.5 months.
“We have noticed all this time that in some peripheral units either the cases do not fall as much as we would like, they fall slowly or we have small flares from time to time. In such areas, to which Mr. Kikilias will refer in the afternoon, if the cases persist high and the pressure in the hospitals continues to be high, then we will have no choice but to take even tougher measures for a certain period of time. ” , said Mr. Petsas speaking on the radio of Parapolitikon.
During today’s briefing on the course of the pandemic, the Minister of Health Mr. Kikilias is expected to ring the alarm bell for areas in Northern Greece and Western Macedonia, where according to information a total lockdown will be announced in the coming days with the possibility of announcing open even tomorrow by the government spokesman in briefing the political authors.
Photographing the targeted areas, the government spokesman stressed: “Not at the moment, but there are areas such as the Kozani regional unit that we are concerned about. We see the evidence that instead of falling imports, they are increasing for example in Ptolemaida or in the hospital of Kozani, that says something. For this signal it is not relaxation, possibly hardening locally if needed, I hope not needed. It will be proved whether it is necessary or not by our behavior “.
This means that gatherings will be banned and you can go – come to the homes of relatives and friends, something that will more or less happen in the rest of the country on Christmas and New Year. At the same time, the churches are expected to be “hermetically sealed” as there will be no open services on these days and the Lights.
