Freeze for extension lockdown: “I wish it were two weeks and not more”
Regarding Mr. Sypsas’ assessment that the weekend crowds could lead to two additional weeks of lockdown, Ms. Pagoni said “I wish there were two and no more”.
Scientists have been observing an increase in the viral load in the sewage of Attica since the holiday season, as Nikos Thomaidis, Professor of Analytical Chemistry at EKPA, stated on SKAI TV, while in the same show “TODAY” the president of EINAP stressed that the National Health System can withstand a third wave of the pandemic.
Mr. Thomaidis stressed that the large dispersion may not be seen in the EODY tests, as a large percentage of cases over 50% are asymptomatic, but the dispersion will be seen in a few days or weeks.
Ms. Pagoni referred to calculations that speak of a third wave around February and expressed the hope that the cases will move low and the same will not happen with Italy and Spain.
Regarding Mr. Sypsas’ assessment that the weekend congestion could lead to two additional weeks of lockdown, he said “I wish there were two and no more”.
Especially for Attica, he mentioned that the viral load is still very high and things are difficult, so more tests need to be done. He also stressed that the situation will be difficult if the cases increase, as the medical staff is not enough and the nurses have also undertaken the great work of vaccinations.
Asked to comment on Mr. Dermitzakis’ proposals, that either a hard lockdown of 3 weeks should be done or another strategy should be followed by opening activities, Ms. Pagoni was sharp, saying that “we are listening to our own committee”.
“Because we are here in Greece and we have our data, I respect Mr. Dermitzanis, what he says from there from Geneva, but we go with the data we have in our hands. Of course he may have (an opinion) but we have some criteria called E.S.Y. and it has priority “, he emphasized characteristically.
Regarding vaccinations, Ms. Pagoni said that they are done at a slow pace and should be doubled and that the process is complex.
Regarding the statement of the Deputy Minister of Health for the doctors and the deaths of patients in simple beds and not ICUs, Ms. Pagoni replied that this is an unfortunate statement that will occupy today’s meeting of EINAP.
“I think it was an unfortunate statement by the deputy minister. I think he will recall. All sites write “responsibilities to doctors for deaths outside the ICU”. We were very upset about this “, said Ms. Pagoni.
He replied that the criteria by which a patient is intubated are scientific and not completeness and that a patient, when deemed necessary, is intubated by doctors in a single bed.
