Greek Professor at Yale Applauds Coronavirus Lockdown Back Home

Nicholas A. Christakis, a Greek professor at Yale University, called on Greeks in a post on Twitter to honor the new lockdown announced by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Sunday, and self-isolate as directed.

“A note to my fellow Greeks,” Christakis wrote, lauding Mitsotakis for closing schools and imposing additional restrictions on movement. “You should not gather outside. This is not a holiday. Stay home!” he urged, adding that people should only go out once a week for essentials and “not touch friends.”

“Den thelo na klapso tin Romiosini,” he concluded, paraphrasing the Greek poet Yiannis Ritsos, whose words were set to music by beloved composer Mikis Theodorakis.
