Member of Greece’s Epidemiologists’ Committee advising the Health Ministry, assistant epidemiology professor Gikas Majorkinis stated on Sunday that the Covid-Pass will most likely be cancelled before Easter, which this year is on April 24.
Speaking to state broadcaster ERT, he said that the vaccination certificate will be abolished by Easter, saying characteristically “this will happen in the next one to two months.”
“Maybe on the Holy Week we will not have the Covid-pass,” Majorkinis stressed adding “once there is no pressure at the moment in the health system, there is no reason to use it.
Regarding the epidemiological situation of the country in the last few days, he estimated that “gradually the deaths and the people who need serious help will decrease” and noted “if the situation continues like this” there is a 50% chance that we will not need a vaccination certificate to enter closed places by Easter:”
Majorkinis did not elaborate, but the media reported that no Covid-Pass will be needed in the closed spaces of restaurants and other venues or shops.
He said that “we are in a transitional stage of the pandemic, some may call it endemic.”
He noted that “there is no possibility of zeroing the infection cases,” but also noted that the health system is currently not under pressure.”
