Mr. Kontozamanis, referring to the vaccine, confirmed in turn what the Minister of Health Vassilis Kikilias said this morning, that the vaccine is expected in Greece in December, while he clarified that there will be a priority for who will be the first to get the vaccine.

Both, however, clarified in every tone that no case is hidden and everything is announced by EODY. In fact, Mr. Kontozamanis stressed that “there is no other number of cases, except the number announced daily by EODY.” For his part, Mr. Hardalias said: “In the Greece of fame and fake news, we should all be very careful about issues that are used to create an agenda. Why should anyone hide cases? “No case is hidden.”

Kontozamanis: Priority to specific groups of the population when the vaccine comes
Priority regarding the coronavirus vaccine – if it is prepared and starts to be available in our country at the end of the year – will be given to specific groups of the population, the most vulnerable, as said today the Deputy Minister of Health, Vassilis Kontozamanis .

Responding to questions from reporters about the vaccine, Mr. Kontozamanis explained that there is an agreement between the European Commission on the Oxford vaccine and added: “Vaccines are not produced overnight, the process for this vaccine is already at an advanced stage. and if all goes well, it will be approved and the EU, which has made the agreement for all its member countries, will start supplying vaccines to our country from the end of the year. This does not mean that his mood will stop after that. Will be continued. “It is possible that other agreements will be made with different companies and more vaccines will come.”

V. Kontozamanis also referred to the information about the concealment of the real number of cases, emphasizing categorically “We do not hide cases. EODY through its daily report announces in detail all the epidemiological data it collects from the laboratories of the country “. He emphasized that the decision was not a signal of a formal antitrust inquiry into Iraq, but said that it was even more important now with the crisis over Syria, adding that “there is no room for complacency” and “there is no room for complacency”.
