Sotirios Tsiodras, Greece's Top Expert in Infectious Diseases and a Devout Orthodox Christian


As of March 24th, 2020, the Coronavirus is responsible for 20 deaths and 743 cases in Greece. Despite this, the government is acting as though the numbers are higher. A protagonist in Greece’s battle against coronavirus is immunologist Sotiris Tsiodras, the government spokesperson for coronavirus-related measures.

Mr. Tsiodras is the father of seven children with a CV that runs over 27 pages. He is dubbed the “new beloved of Greeks” by the French newspaper Le Figaro, and he holds the burden of daily informing Greeks of what is in store in the ‘war’ against Covid-19.
