"It simply came to our notice then, since there will be no mock tests on tourists before they come to our country ", said the professor of Infectious Diseases, Nikolaos Sypsas speaking on Open TV, however, he hurried to reassure her that: "I think we will spend the summer without incident, we will deal with sporadic cases, but we will deal with them adequately "……..
For tourists who will arrive in our country, the infectious disease specialist pointed out: "It simply came to our notice then. If the visitor comes from an endemic country, we will do more tests. When he goes to the place where he will go on vacation, there will be a way to deal with it if it shows suspicious symptoms. A test will be performed immediately if there are suspicious symptoms and will be isolated immediately. Then the tracking will follow ".
"Rule inviolable, will be the distance ", pointed out once again the professor of Infectious Diseases, emphasizing that we will keep our distance "Regardless of origin. The distance will become the big rule. Not to mention, he is my friend, I know him, I see him well. Big mistake. As we keep our distance from the tourist, we will also keep it from the Greek we know ".
He said about the pools: "With the measures that have been taken, the distance of two meters is ensured. We are not interested in water. We are interested in squares. Supervision will be left to the pool owner. The directive is to have an employee who will oversee the number of people entering the pool. The virus does not travel in water, whether it is chlorinated or in the sea. ". Referring in any direction, he reiterated that «for one to two years we will keep our distance. Get used to it…», It was the message sent.
For hotel employees he stressed: "The staff will be fully trained by the hotel doctor on how to behave but also on how to detect cases.. The goal is not to have staff coming in and out of the room all the time».
The professor of Infectious Diseases also clarified that if there is an outbreak «we will not even hesitate to stop tourism. We will deal with sporadic cases with adequacy. I don't think we will get there, sure, at this point. However, we do everything to avoid an outbreak of the pandemic in the summer. Every summer there will be hard and daily surveillance so that we do not have cases ".
Referring to the second wave of corona that is most likely to occur in the fall, the message he sent is as follows: "We do not know what will happen next. It is the seventh mockery humanity faces. We are waiting for a second wave when the windows close and the schools open. Health will be better, we will have the medicine and we will have learned to live with the virus. I don't think we will have quarantine again. ", He noted Mr.. You're right.
End, on the major issue of schools and whether they will open or not, he stressed: "On Sunday, 24 May, the final meeting of the committee will be held with the final recommendation for the schools. I think this is the right time now if we want to open schools and not keep them closed for two years.. It's hot now, open windows everywhere and in schools. To teach children, parents and teachers how to deal with these conditions ", noted the professor of Infectious Diseases.
