Better Late Than Never, KINAL Says on Decision to Mobilise Private Sector Doctors

ATHENS — "Better late than never! The government has finally forcibly enlisted private sector doctors to assist the new Covid clinics in the hospitals. As we had suggested," the Movement for Change (KINAL) party said in a statement on Monday.

However, it underlined that it is not enough, as "it is necessary to proceed with the requisitioning of the private clinics – and especially the large ones that are fully equipped – in order for the national health system to have room to breathe."

"It is unacceptable, at a time when we have intubated patients outside ICUs and waiting lists for a bed, for the private health sector to not fully participate in the effort," KINAL said.



ATHENS - US Ambassador George Tsunis added to a list of those lauding Greece’s recovery from a 2010-18 financial and austerity crisis, calling it an “economic miracle,” that is seeing investors from the United States and world jumping in.
