  • In the care units for the elderly and the chronically ill, a 48-hour PCR visit and a stricter visit to the hospitals.
  • Any organized party in public or private space is prohibited

Special and clear recommendations for home gatherings on New Year’s Eve are also expected to be issued.

Regarding the situation in the national health system, he said that those who have been affected by the Delta mutation are mainly treated, but at the same time in the community it seems that the Omicron mutation is the dominant one. As he mentioned, the system is still under pressure from the Delta mutation, which is why we are in full agreement with the private structures to provide us with beds and staff.

According to Mr. Plevris, the committee unanimously calls on the citizens to be vaccinated, the vaccines cover the Omicron mutation, and not to spread false news that the vaccines do not cover it, he stressed.

He also said that the government will re-evaluate the whole framework both in terms of the obligation of vaccinations and for the time when the certificates will be valid.
