The Council of Ministers decides tomorrow on the relaxations that will be implemented from the beginning of February, in the shadow of the fear caused by the new strain of the virus. Yesterday, the epidemiologists submitted their proposals before the President of the Republic, Mr. Nikos Anastasiadis, who will make announcements within the week. At the same time, OKYPY broadcasts SOS on the situation in the hospitals, which may improve day by day but has not yet reached the desired point, which will allow universal unlocking. As Mr. Charilaou emphasizes, the situation in the hospitals remains critical and it is still early to draw safe conclusions.
