Greek Doctors Protest Lack of Staff, ICU Beds, and Care for Non-Coronavirus Patients

September 23, 2020

ATHENS — Hospital doctors will rally at 12:00 at the Ministry of Health in downtown Athens and strike for 24 hours on Thursday for what their federation called "tragic shortages in staff and infrastructure".

The Federation of Hospital Doctor Associations of Greece (OENGE) said that "67 pct of ICU beds dedicated to Covid-19 are already occupied and the future ahead promises to be tougher."

They also charged that beds were being redistributed for coronavirus patients, shortchanging patients who had other serious illnesses. "The health system has become a one-illness system, with disastrous results for patients' health," they said.
