She also said that there will be no student parades and that the military parade in Athens will be broadcast on television.

This development is due to the great pressure on the health system caused by COVID-19.

As Peloni pointed out, this pressure on the health system will continue for the next 10 days.

“There are no parades on March 25 and only the military parade will take place, which will be broadcast on television,” she said.
