KINAL Calls for Urgent Measures to Avoid Shortage of ICU Beds

September 22, 2020

ATHENS — The opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) party on Tuesday stressed the need for urgent action to support the national health system, noting that "the situation with the pandemic has gotten out of hand and there is a visible danger of having no available ICU beds."

In an announcement, KINAL said the government had delayed taking the necessary steps and failed to make good use of the donations made, and to train the necessary staff.

"It is imperative that measures are taken immediately: to allow any 'unused' beds there are to begin operating and to include the units of the private sector in the overall planning and management," the party added, noting that the prime minister's promises to improve the National Health System had proven to be empty words.

"Action now, before it is too late," the party concluded.


ATHENS - Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis chaired an interministerial meeting at Maximos Mansion on Saturday to discuss progress in registering damages and paying compensations to flood-afflicted people in Thessaly, central Greece.
