The government and scientists are concerned about the increase in cases, especially in Attica, and the coronavirus mutations, however the decision to open high schools and lyceums is final and the government plans to return secondary school students to the classrooms. their does not seem to change.

According to information and sources from the Ministry of Education, the increase in cases does not seem to change the government's plans for the opening of Gymnasiums and Lyceums on February 1, provided that in the next two days there will be no sharp and dramatic increase in cases or of piping. Infectious disease specialists are worried, but they had predicted an increase in cases after the market opened. In fact, the increase they expected was greater, while they point out that the high number of new infections resulted from a large increase in the number of tests. In fact, compared to the previous two measurements, the cases on Tuesday recorded a marginal increase, for which, according to experts, retail or the increase of consumer mobility is not considered responsible.

In any case, due to delays in vaccination of the population, if there is a sharp increase in cases and patients admitted to the ICU, it is possible that the committee of scientists will meet and reconsider the schedule of withdrawal of activities. However, it is considered very difficult not to open high schools and lyceums on the first of February, as previously announced.

Earlier, the professor and member of the Infectious Diseases Committee left open the possibility of overturning the decision to open secondary education next Monday. Charalambos Gogos, speaking on SKAI radio. As he said, "the decision has been made, but it is possible that it will change if things get worse. We will see the data of the week on Friday to finalize the opening of the schools from Monday ".
