SYRIZA uses strong wording for people disregarding coronavirus directions

Traffic jams at national highways and ports is “an act of irresponsibility before the emergency of the coronavirus pandemic,” SYRIZA said in a statement, warning that “instead of containing the virus, there is a dangerous likelihood it will spread beyond control.”

In a strong and unusual message to the public, the main opposition party called on all Greeks to “obey the rules and facts imposed by the urgent need to fight the coronavirus.”
It reiterated the official message that “the country is not on holiday mode, but at an extremely critical point in its future.”

The government, it added, needs to apply with great consistency all necessary measures to safeguard public health, “instead of announcing ahead of time decisions that lead to panic.”
