Tsipras: Mykonos a ‘certificate of gov’t failure’ in pandemic handling

The lockdown on Mykonos, following a spike in coronavirus infections there, “is a certificate of abject failure,” SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras said on Saturday on Twitter.

In a criticism of government handling of the pandemic, the main opposition leader said, “It sends a negative message to our entire tourism.”

He added, “If there were a sense of honor (filotimo), we would hear an apology for the shoddy opening of tourism without measures. Instead, it’s self-congratulations and targeting citizens.”
