In his Facebook post, Fraggidis states:

“Friends,

After some mild symptoms I had, I did a molecular test for the coronavirus today and it came out positive.

I have been vaccinated for 2.5 months and the chances of transmitting the virus are not high (according to Israeli experts, a vaccinated person may get a mild illness but not transmit the coronavirus).

However, I consider it my duty to the community, in addition to the necessary information that I have already made to Greek health services, to make it known through Facebook.

Of course, I will follow the necessary quarantine time.

The virus is very cunning and resistant and we have to be very careful.

I wish everyone a Happy Easter, with health and patience.

Everything will become better.”
