Koutsoumbas: Greek Public health System “In the Red Zone”

September 24, 2020

ATHENS — "The state of the public health system is 'in the red zone'. Now, before it is too late for the health of the people, the government should quit the 'patches and darns' and act now to set up new ICUs, proceed with the large-scale recruitment of doctors and nurses and add all the facilities and services of the private health and welfare sector to the national health system," said the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) Central Committee, Dimitris Koutsoumbas, on Thursday.

"It must satisfy the just demands of hospital doctors and health workers, who are fighting to protect the health of the people," he added.



ATHENS - The General Secretariat for Civil Protection on Friday urged the public to be particularly careful and to protect themselves against potential dangers as a result of the intense weather phenomena expected this weekend, starting late on Friday night.
