Iliopoulos: Parents with children infected with COVID-19 should get special-purpose leave

Main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance spokesperson Nassos Iliopoulos called on the government to immediately grant special-purpose leave to working parents whose children are suffering from COVID-19.
“Despite the government’s unprecedented mess with the opening of schools, with shortages of self tests, over 15,000 infections have been already recorded in pupils and teachers,” underlined the main opposition’s spokesperson in a TV statement on Monday.

He accused the government of intentionally implementing a herd immunity policy and concluded: “The granting of special special-purpose leave is imperative both for working parents and for the childrens’ protection, as well as for preventing the spread of the virus”.
