KINAL: The Tragic Pictures in Hospitals Can’t Continue

ATHENS — Οpposition party Movement for Change (KINAL), in an announcement on Wednesday, called on the government to take immediate measures to curb the pandemic as the situation permits no delays, in response to the tragic images seen at Greek public hospitals on Tuesday and the suspension of the accident and emergency shift at Laiko hospital.

KINAL requested that all healthcare facilities, all human resources and medical technical means, whether private, military or public be thrown into the battle against the coronavirus. "The tragic pictures in hospitals can't continue".

Especially, on the suspension of the A&E at Laiko due to a lack of available beds, it underlined that the pictures of intubated patients in hospital corridors, the reports of patients dying outside ICUs creates an unacceptable, nightmarish landscape.

"We have been warning the government in the last days about the need for the National Health System to be given respite through the requisitioning of all private clinics, including the larger ones that have the necessary facilities," added KINAL, intimating that government ministers "are hostages of large-scale interests and find it a 'needless cost', in a display of cynicism and callousness at a time when citizens’ lives are at risk".
