Gerapetritis: The only way to free ourselves from the pandemic is the vaccine

State Minister Giorgos Gerapetritis in an interview with Real News on Sunday said that the government is addressing the new surge of the pandemic “with weapons the strengthening of the health system, the further increase of the available ICU beds along with the integration of private clinics and doctors and the use of tests.

“We will continue to be vigilant and intervene according to the case” said Gerapetritis and clarified that “it is not in the government’s intentions to again impose horizontal measures because it is not aligned with the offer of the vaccine as a good for all”.

He also underlined that “closed market and society is an unfair punishment for those vaccinated and are protected while it bears risk for the economy and finally, we must escape from the self-destruction of denial and understand that the only way to free ourselves for good from the vice of the pandemic is the vaccine”.
