COVID-19 fourth wave and China’s Cosco under fire in Greece

This week our Beyond the Byline podcast focuses on the COVID-19, the fourth wave the European countries try to avoid, the offered third vaccine dose and the new measures decided by the EU members. To explain what we know about what is happening in Europe right now, I’m joined today by EURACTIV’s health reporter Giedre Peseckyte.

We’re also discussing the Chinese company that controls 67% of the Piraeus port, the working conditions that are leading to strikes there, the deals signed by the Greek government, and the reaction of environmentalist groups.

To break down the components of this story, I spoke with EURACTIV Greece’s Matthaios Tsimitakis.
