ATHENS — "Today, on World Health Day, we are here at Evangelismos hospital in Athens to express our solidarity with the struggle of the doctors, nurses and other hospital staff for their huge contribution in pandemic conditions but also in every other phase in the life of this country, for the protection of health and the protection of Greek people's lives," stated Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Dimitris Koutsoumbas said at a rally of Evangelismos staff on Wednesday.
