Message from Mosialos after 110 outbreaks: We can not stand a second lockdown!! "There is no need for panic but a systematic effort to implement the measures by everyone"…..
Professor at the London School of Economics, Elias Mossialos with a post on Facebook, a few minutes after the number of coronavirus cases in our country became known on August 1 (110), commented on the event, characterizing the expected after the relaxation and de-escalation of measures.
Although stressed that there should be no panic reported, as he has repeatedly done, the need to use a mask, but also all measures to protect and prevent the spread of coronavirus.
"We can not stand it second lockdown and we can easily prevent it with the systematic effort of the state and citizens " he said.
His post in detail:
"110 new cases today. 9 only at the entrance gates of the country. It was expected, however, with so much laxity that it prevailed after the de-escalation of the measures and why more tests are now being done. The good news is the very small number of people admitted to the ICU. It seems that the elderly and those who belong to vulnerable groups are careful. However, if the number of cases increases much more, it will be easier to spread to vulnerable groups..
I did not stop emphasizing the importance of adhering to measures to prevent the spread of the virus. Especially after the de-escalation of the measures when many thought that we got rid of the virus. I stressed the importance of using a mask in the right way (not on the chin as is customary). And I was systematically informed about the adverse health and medical effects, although we had a small number of cases. The virus has not disappeared and its effects are still significant in many countries (USA, Brazil, India).
There is no need for panic but a systematic effort to implement the measures by everyone (and mainly by public figures) and always horizontally and without exceptions.
Implementing the measures will significantly reduce the spread of the virus and protect our health and our economy. We can not stand a second lockdown and we can easily prevent it with the systematic effort of the state and citizens. ".
