Gikas: On the table the mandatory use of a double mask and the extension of the lockdown
As of 6 am today, another tough lockdown has begun in Attica, which is closing schools and shops and ringing the alarm bell for the third wave of the pandemic that threatens the entire planet. A lockdown that, according to Kyriakos Mitsotakis, will last until February 28. However, epidemiologists do not believe that 2.5 weeks is enough to see the desired results.
2.5 weeks of lockdown are not enough
Professor of Pathology and member of the committee of the Ministry of Health Achilleas Gikas, speaking today to SKAI, estimated that the 2.5 weeks of lockdown in Attica are not enough to limit the spread and reduce the number of cases.
«2.5 weeks will not be enough for us. These procedures are very time consuming. The curve is very slow. “An extension may be needed and an extension will probably be needed”, said A. Gikas to SKAI,
We discuss the mandatory use of a double mask
He then spoke about the mandatory use of a double mask, a possibility that is possible: “We may need to reconstruct and review the measures we have taken. We can review the masks for example.
We have started a discussion in committee on a double mask mandatory. I totally agree with that. There is a debate these days both internationally and in the country. There are gaps. At the moment, the masks are not worn properly. We have to train people to put on the mask properly. “
