Government spokesperson Stelios Petsas thanked Greek citizens for their response to the measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus on Monday, as Greece’s infection and death rates remain impressively low compared to other EU member states of similar size, according to greekreporter.com.
Petsas also pointed out that if everything goes well, May could possibly be the month when Greece sees the first easing of the curfew first imposed on the country in late March.
While describing the relative number of cases and deaths in different countries, Petsas showed two graphs, comparing Greece with Portugal, Belgium and the Netherlands.
These clearly indicate that the numbers in Greece are impressively lower than the other EU member states of similar size. However, the authorities still insist that, despite this very positive result, everyone still must stay at home, and no measures have been rescinded yet.
