The Council of Ministers is expected to take decisions at tomorrow’s meeting to further ease the restrictive measures, Government Spokesman Kyriakos Kousios announced today.
Speaking to the press at the Presidential Palace after the President’s meeting with political leaders and members of the epidemiological advisory group, Kyriakos Kousios said that “during today’s meeting, the President of the Republic fully and thoroughly informed political leaders on pandemic issues. Health Constantinos Ioannou and the coordinator of the epidemiological advisory group Constantinos Tsioutis for their part updated the political leaders on issues related to the epidemiological appearance, the management of the test plan, the vaccination plan, the vaccination rates, the schedule for the completion of the vaccination process for covering the entire population of Cyprus, as well as on the measures under discussion and relaxations expected to be decided tomorrow by the Cabinet.
Many questions were asked by political leaders, which were fully answered by the President and the Minister of Health, but also by members of the epidemiological advisory group.
The President also informed the political leaders that during tomorrow’s meeting, the Cabinet will discuss further relaxation of the measures. At this point and in light of some publications that have existed, I must stress that there is no political decision to impose special measures in the province of Limassol.
Following tomorrow’s Cabinet meeting, the Minister of Health will make announcements regarding the easing of the measures.
I again call on our fellow citizens to be patient and calm, so that we can all adhere to hygienic and protective measures without exception so that we can control the pandemic and return to normalcy as soon as possible. We must all acknowledge that with the courage, the timely measures we have taken, the patience of all our fellow citizens, with their sacrifices we have reached the point of being ranked among the best places in pandemic management. Let me remind you that, compared to other European countries, we have the shortest period of restrictive measures and much better results in terms of mortality, patient treatment, testing, but we also have the perspective allowed by epidemiological data that the measures soon gradually relax
March is a critical month; we must all act responsibly in order to be able to fully relax the masses, without any risk to the first and greatest good we have; health and life. We all need to believe in perspective, cooperate and better days will surely come very soon. ”
