Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias believes Greece is heading towards the end of the tunnel in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Minister of Health stressed that everything points to the fact that the situation with the pandemic in Greece will improve in the near future.

He also noted the role of increased vaccines and tests that will be performed from April.

"We have every reason to believe that we are moving in the right direction and soon we will be able to take our lives back," he said in speaking with SKAI.

"If in the first three months [of this year] we did 1.5 million vaccinations, in April alone we will do 1.5 million," said Kikilias.
