A famous Greek-American sociologist professor at Yale, Nicholas Christakis urged his fellow Greeks in a tweet to comply with the strict measures against the spread of the coronavirus announced by PM Mitsotakis.
A note to my fellow Greeks. @kmitsotakis properly closed the schools and made other announcements to reduce social mixing. You should not gather outside. This is not a holiday. Stay home! Go out once a week for essentials. Do not touch friends. Den thelo na klapso tin Romiosini.
Christakis ended his tweet by using a lyric from a famous poem by Yiannis Ritsos called Romiosini versified by renowned composer Mikis Theodorakis writing “I do not want to cry for Romiosini (Greekness)”.
