Koronoios: What are the additional measures that the government can take?
The plans that have been drawn up provide for the seizure of ships to the ordering of hospitals, an increase in fines and the "recruitment" of doctors.
"We have more weapons in our quiver, it is up to everyone not to use them," said the Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, from the floor of Parliament last Thursday, referring to dealing with his pandemic coronavirus. But what exactly did he mean? What exactly are these weapons that can be used?
Most citizens estimate that the curfew possibly the last measure that could be taken. Big mistake. It is very basic, but there are many more (some of which remain secret), some of which we are revealing to you today, from orders to the use of military units.
Some of them are studied daily in the meetings that take place at the Maximos Palace, that is, where the Prime Minister together with his close associates hold daily teleconferences with the Minister of Health, VasilisKikilia, and the Undersecretary VasilisKontozamani, the Deputy Minister of Civil Protection, NikosChardalia, the committee of 26 scientists of the Ministry of Health under the professor of Pathology, infectious disease specialist of the Medical School of the University of Athens, SaviorTsiodra, and its London - based representative Greece in international organizations on the subject of coronavirus, Professor Elias Mosialo.
The truth is that so far the battle has been won but not the war, since, as the competent doctors point out, the timely and drastic meters taken are not in any way a guarantee that our country has overcome the danger and will not face situations like those experienced in Italy or Spain as our health system is not famous for its adequacy.
If at this critical juncture there is the slightest relaxation of the measures or a dramatic increase in cases is found, then the new package of measures is ready, part of which will be implemented only in case the data tend to the worst case scenario, which fortunately so far does not appear on the horizon. Remember that the crucial element is not only the number of dead but also that of the intubated.
So what emergency measures are ready to be implemented in case the non-genital is required?
