The association for retired people and the elderly, Amiperas, issued a press release on Thursday to address the challenges faced by the country's senior citizens.

In the statement, the association emphasises that the number of people suffering under the prolonged isolation consistently grows. Many of the vulnerable and elderly have now been forced to live in isolation for several months.

Amiperas thus stresses the importance of acting on the promises of solidarity between young and old, and denouncing any negative statements made towards the latter.
