Greece is mulling “more freedoms” for vaccinated citizens



Greece is mulling a package of measures allowing more “freedoms” for fully vaccinated citizens and consequently more restrictions for the unvaccinated ones. Health Minister Thanos Plevris revealed that the Ministry and the epidemiologists’ committee are currently working in this direction.


Speaking to Skai TV on Monday, Plevris stressed that 90% of the Covid-patients in ICUs are not vaccinated, he said that these come from 30% of the unvaccinated adult population in the country.


He argued that “where fully vaccinated citizens are and therefore the risk of Covid-19 transmission is not so big “a regime of much wider freedom is needed so that we can reach a level of normality.”


Plevris indicated that the new measures will include more freedoms for vaccinated people in indoor entertainment and leisure venues even in regions with high numbers of coronavirus infections.
