KKE Leader: Thessaloniki in the Red Zone

November 11, 2020

ATHENS — "The situation in Thessaloniki is in the red zone. The superhuman efforts of doctors and nursing staff in today's dramatic conditions that are getting worse and worse is not enough. The government is not doing what should have be done and bears criminal responsibility. It must immediately go through with staff hirings in healthcare, as well as the proposals tabled by the Communist Party of Greece (KKE)," party leader Dimitris Koutsoumbas stated on Wednesday.

"Now, without any further delay, the government must proceed with the requisitioning of the private health sector in order to secure enough ICU beds and with the checks in crucial areas, as retirement homes," Koutsoumbas added and called on for the reopening and staffing of "Loimodon" and "Panaghia" hospitals, the mass hiring of doctors, nursing staff and free COVID-19 tests.

Finally, he said that "this is the only emergency plan that can prevent the worst in Thessaloniki and in Greece".
