President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulos visited the health ministry on Saturday morning and met Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias.
She expressed her full support for the country's doctors and nurses, thanking them for their tireless struggle against the coronavirus pandemic.
Kikilias briefed the president on the current spread of the virus in the Greek population and the actions the ministry is taking for the prevention and treatment of Covid-19 cases.
The president repeated her appeal to Greeks to assist healthcare staff in their work by strictly following the instructions of the experts and state authorities and abiding by the restrictions: "I am aware of the difficulties we all face but the restrictions imposed are absolutely essential in order to protect each other and especially those among us who are most at risk. It is the personal responsibility of each and every one of us to prove that we can emerge victorious from this ordeal."
