Greek Mobile Medical Units on the Road for Coronavirus Testing

ATHENS – The National Public Health Organization's (EODY) first 25 mobile medical units began carrying out diagnostic tests for Covid-19 on Monday in Athens, Thessaloniki and Karditsa, and the prison at Domokos town, central Greece.

A fleet of 500 mobile medical units will eventually span the entire country, after the hiring of 500 nurses, 500 drivers and 100 administrators.

The mobile medical units will obtain samples and offer nursing assistance to home-bound people who are likely to or confirmed as having contracted the virus.

Another 100 administrators will also be trained to manage the National Public Health Organization’s (EODY) call center, and to better coordinate the mobile health units in the field.
