Speaking to state broadcaster ERT, von der Leyen expressed also her satisfaction and optimism over the latest developments regarding a coronavirus vaccine.

She stated that, as of Tuesday, November 17, Greece will have access to a large sum from the SURE programme, which will help companies and employees affected by the pandemic.

“I have good news for Greece. As of Tuesday, Greece will have access to 2.0 billion euros through the SURE mechanism. In total, it will have access to 2.7 billion euros. It is a lot of money for a good cause.
