Shipowner Evangelos Marinakis has said he has fully recovered from coronavirus after testing positive on 10 March. He praised the Greek medical system and the “heroes” who treated him.
“After two weeks in full compliance, I underwent my second medical test which turned out negative,” the Greek shipping magnate said.
“I need to extend my thanks to the Greek National Health system doctors for their care and advice: those heroes dressed in green and white coats who cater 24/7 for their fellow people; all my friends, each and every one of them, for their endless love, thousands of messages (or even verses) and unselfish support.”
“I also feel the obligation, in these critical times, to address a message inspired by experiencing this brief adventure of mine. It is worth staying at home to protect ourselves and our relatives. By staying at home, we shield ourselves and deny the virus intruding in our lives. By staying at home, we defend our community, the many, public health and contain the virus spread.So there is no room for being careless or selfish. It is required to stay disciplined and fully in line with the government and scientists.”
