The government’s decision for ‘stop-go’ lockdowns was catastrophic for health, the economy and employees, opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata said on Wednesday, adding that the third wave of the pandemic was out of control.
She explained that the government had not strengthened the national health system and hospitals have reached their limits. She added that improvisations and panicked half-measures are not enough and do not convince the citizens, as there was still a long way to go in dealing with the pandemic, given that the vaccination will take months to complete.
“It’s not over yet. We need a national plan, one that’s effective. With targeted measures for health, society, businesses,” she underlined, and noted that she has been asking for a debate on this to be held in the parliament for a month now. “We are ready. The government is deaf, the cost is paid by the citizens,” concluded Gennimata.
