Today, the issue of the medical certificate required by the EFKA to pay hospital workers with coronavirus will be resolved, Deputy Minister of Health Mina Gaga assured.
Mina Gaga commented that the rapid test is enough to compensate the worker. The Deputy Minister of Health stated the following: “I consider it an achievement that more than 7 million tests have been carried out. There are very few who did not pass the tests, and we sent the tests to the schools for them. “The fact that 7 million tests have been done is to be congratulated.”
As the Deputy Minister of Health said, “to date, 14,000 children have been identified who have tested positive for coronavirus, and they need to undergo PCR tests,” and commented, as the Secretary General of the Ministry of Education said earlier, that “we are always ready to review measures regarding schools “.
As for the expiration seven month certificate on vaccinations domestically but not abroad, she recommended “get tested even if you go to Paris”, noting that “data show that after the fourth month the antibodies decrease and the third dose protects well against the Omicron strain as well.”
When asked if there would be a mandatory vaccination for those over 50, she replied that “we did not discuss anything about those over 50, we saw that those over 60 have a problem in intensive care units.”
