Tsipras: Mykonos curfew an example of government’s ‘utter failure’


The leader of main opposition SYRIZA, Alexis Tsipras blamed the government for the return of restrictions on Mykonos during a visit to the Aegean island Thursday.

“Mykonos is the flagship of the Greek tourist industry and the most characteristic example of the government’s utter failure in managing of the pandemic,” he said after visiting the local health center. 

“When you make the same mistake for a second time in the same year, it is not a misstep or misfortune, but inefficiency,” the leftist leader noted.

He also called for improved health services at tourist destinations, with extensive testing and tracking, and more quarantine hotels on the islands.
