Alexis Tsipras COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine third dose

SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras, who announced at the weekend that he had tested positive for Covid-19, called on the public on Tuesday to be cautious as the virus is not to be taken lightly.

Taking to social media, the main opposition leader said: “Take care of yourself, of your dear ones, and those you come into contact with. The virus is no joke, and for many people, it is anything but a simple cold.”

He urged people to get their vaccinations, wear masks, maintain social distancing, keep calmness and “above all”, show solidarity.

Tsipras said he had run a temperature and had a strong headache over the last three days. He still feels tired and remains in isolation.
