Coronavirus: Catering sector wants priority in vaccinations

ΛΕΥΚΩΣΙΑ ΕΠΑΝΑΛΕΙΤΟΥΡΓΙΑ ΚΑΦΕΤΕΡΙΩΝ ΜΠΑΡ

Priority should be given to vaccinating employees in the catering sector, president of the recreation centres association (Osika) Neophytos Thrasyvoulou said on Tuesday.

This would pave the way for reopening cafes and restaurants which are now closed due to the lockdown, he noted.

“From the latest statements of the finance minister it is clear that any support measures for business owners for the month of April will be the last,” Thrasyvoulos added.

This, he continued, means the government must concentrate on vaccinations of those working in the industry and thus support vulnerable groups completely dependent on the tourism industry.

“We demand the reopening of our businesses in healthy conditions that allow them to operate without closures. This time the right evaluations must be made and the right decisions must be taken on the part of the government so that we do not suffer setbacks.”
