Moderate optimism in Greece on the course of coronavirus COVID-19

The current course of the coronavirus pandemic in Greece gives rise to moderate optimism, infectious diseases professor Sotiris Tsiodras said on Friday, speaking at the daily televised update on the outbreak.

As the Health Ministry’s coronavirus spokesman, Tsiodras pointed out that although there is a rather slow increase in infections, “ we may see a decline, yet this is up to us entirely,” as the spread can very rapidly reach the larger population, depending heavily on observing the current restrictive measures with due diligence. He said there is a possibility of progressively lifting the measures when new data is backed up scientifically and allow it.

The professor also mentioned the discovery of an experimental drug by Chinese scientists which introduces some hope in the fight against Covid-19, but recommended patience until the drug’s practical effectiveness becomes more substantiated. CONTINUE READING HERE
