Anti-vaccines organized a protest

A protest rally against vaccinations and anti-coronavirus measures took place this afternoon in Thessaloniki in front of a statue of Alexander the Great, at a time when cases of infection and sewage show an increase in viral load.

According to GrTimes, dozens of masked citizens, despite the crowds, gathered today on the beach of Thessaloniki, protesting against the operation to “destroy” human rights, but also for an “invisible attack”.

According to the Festival, “Admiral Papantoniou”, known for his intransigent position on the Internet, spoke at the rally, talking about an unconstitutional government and an occupied state. The activist said that “the story of the coronavirus was fabricated,” and that “doctors do not keep the Hippocratic oath,” while noting that “the world’s governments are not interested in people’s health.”

This opinion was expressed publicly, despite the fact that all studies “converge” on the effectiveness of the vaccines.

The number of cases is again in three digits
Over the past 24 hours, 117 new cases have been reported in Thessaloniki. The last time such a three-digit number was recorded on June 8 (126 cases of covid, in total).
