KKE: Government Comparisons Over Handling of the Pandemic “Ιnfuriating and Macabre”

November 23, 2020

ATHENS — "The government's attempt at convenient and selective comparisons with other countries to hide its criminal responsibilities for the management of the pandemic is infuriating and macabre. As in Greece, so also in other countries, public health systems are collapsing due to a policy of commercialisation and the so-called 'harmonious coexistence of public and private sector', which has been implemented by all Greek governments," the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) said on Monday. The party was commenting on a statement by Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis, in which he compared the situation in Greece with that in Belgium.

"If the situation in Greece has not reached the even more tragic levels of other countries, it is due to the arduous and often silent struggles that have taken place for public health over the years, struggles that today are more necessary and relevant than ever," concluded the party.
