Asked about the opening of schools, he said that "schools had to be opened because they have already suffered two mass abstentions in recent years and have had an impact on both their mental health and their education."

He also mentioned that at the moment in the intensive care unit of Makarios Hospital there is a child who was born prematurely from a positive mother who, as she mentioned, had a difficult time. "She was intubated, the child was also premature and she is intubated but the child is out of danger."
