After a year of the pandemic and experimentation, the scientists are now imperatively demanding a change of the approach to face the crisis.
Speaking to Phileleftheros, Konstantinos Fellas and Kostantinos Tsioutis, heads of the two scientific committees on the pandemic, stressed that it is time to change views.
Konstantinos Fellas said that so far we have been simply giving numbers, we decide and announce measure. We must get ways from the measures and restrictions.
Tsioutis said that knowledge and experience are important, adding that “over the coming years we might have to face the consequences of the ongoing isolation of children including psycho-social development, child obesity and other illnesses like diabetes or violent behavior.”
