Covid-19: in Greece, the noose tightens around the unvaccinated – Sciences et Avenir

The Greek prime minister announced on Thursday a series of measures for the unvaccinated, including a ban from Monday to enter closed spaces other than places to eat.

“Beginning Monday (November 22), unvaccinated people will not be allowed to enter enclosed spaces except food places,” Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in a speech to the nation urging his fellow citizens to get vaccinated.

Until now, the unvaccinated were admitted to closed spaces after a negative test.

“It is an imminent action for the protection” of the population, said Kyriakos Mitsotakis, specifying that “nine out of ten people” currently intubated in the country’s hospitals were not vaccinated.

With a vaccination rate close to 63%, Greece (10.7 million inhabitants) is not at the level of other European countries, recalled the Prime Minister.

About 575,000 residents over the age of 60 are not vaccinated, he said.

Since the end of October, the number of contaminations has continued to rise, from 3,600 on October 29 to 6,150 a week later and to 7,317 on Wednesday, according to the daily report provided by the National Public Health Organization (Eody).

“The third dose of the vaccine is decisive” especially for the elderly, said Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who emphasized that the vaccination certificate for people over 60 years of age will no longer be valid seven months after the last vaccination dose.

Given the reluctance of the powerful Greek Orthodox Church to respect measures to curb the pandemic, the prime minister indicated that the unvaccinated will now not be able to enter churches without having a negative test.

Wearing a mask is still mandatory for everyone indoors and outdoors in gathering areas.
