Greek Doctors, Nurses in State Hospitals to Strike on Thursday

ATHENS — Doctors and nurses employed under the country's national health system will strike on Thursday, their unions said on Tuesday.

In a statement, the Panhellenic Federation of Public Hospital Employees (POEDIN) said that "it will be catastrophic if the health system adapts once again to managing coronavirus cases to the detriment of operation rooms, cardiology units and outpatient clinics, and thus lead to the rise in fatalities of other medical causes."

Unions also request, among other things, the permanent appointment of all auxiliary staff and short-term contract employees, full funding from the state budget for the national health system, and repeated coronavirus tests on all health personnel.


ATHENS – Celestyal, the award-winning, number one choice for travelers to the Greek Islands and the Eastern Mediterranean, has partnered with the Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD), a Turkish government entity established to coordinate post-disaster response and to promote cooperation among various government agencies, in order to provide blankets and sleeping bags to some of the more than one million residents of Turkey who remain homeless following the 7.
