Appeal to young people: “Be careful, take care of yourself, you are not invulnerable”
At the beginning of the meeting, Mr. Mitsotakis addressed the citizens and, among other things, sent a message to young people: “I want to make a special appeal to our young people, to the young children. I also have children at this age, 17, 23 and 22, I know the carelessness of age. But please, I appeal to you: Be careful, take care of yourself, you are not invulnerable, and especially those who are not invulnerable are your parents and grandparents “.
At the same time, it was announced that the announcement of new measures, within the day, will be by the Deputy Minister of Civil Protection in charge of Civil Protection and Crisis Management, Nikos Hardalia.
In detail, during his introductory statement, the Prime Minister stated:
“Thank you very much. We will then have a discussion, Nikos Hardalias will announce a series of measures which we will agree on in our teleconference today. I want to dwell on an aspect that concerns me greatly, and that has to do with the fact that we now have evidence of the virus spreading to a number of tourist destinations.
We also know that this spread of the virus affects much younger ages. And we also know that these people in the coming days, in the coming weeks, will return from their tourist destinations to their permanent residences in the major urban centers.
It is very, very important that they take on the responsibility to protect, not only themselves, but especially their loved ones, their parents, their grandparents.
Therefore, the recommendation will be very strict. Anyone returning from a tourist destination for a week should be careful. What does it mean to be careful? Wear a mask where you can and certainly keep away from the most vulnerable, elderly people you may have at home. If he/she lives with people from whom they can not keep a physical distance, make sure you wear a mask and for at least a week – until we are absolutely sure that he/she does not return with the virus in urban centers – to protect those we want to take care of more.
There will be a corresponding effort by the government through some spots that will be prepared, to emphasize exactly this issue, but beyond the additional measures that we will announce today, we will once again stand on the importance of individual responsibility.
It is not possible to have a police officer and a port officer next to each of our fellow citizens. Of course there are restrictive measures. Of course there are sanctions. But if we really want to stop this second wave in its infancy – which seems to be happening in all countries of the world – and not be forced to take more drastic measures that will undoubtedly have economic implications, we must all now take on our responsibilities.
We as a state will do it. We will do it in a very organized way, as we have done so far, always listening to the advice of experts and not hesitating to take action sooner rather than later.
But, especially, I want to make a special appeal to our young people, to the young children. I also have children at this age, 17, 23 and 22, I know the carelessness of age. But please, appeal: Be careful, take care of yourself, you are not invulnerable, and especially those who are not invulnerable are your parents and grandparents.
Therefore, I will not tire of repeating this call, especially to young children, so that we do not find ourselves in the awkward position of having to take more drastic measures than we want, which will undoubtedly have financial consequences. ”
