Greece’s largest tobacco products company Papastratos on Tuesday announced its donation of 19 advanced respirators to Athens’ Sotiria General Hospital of Thoracic Diseases.

The respirators will be added to 19 new beds in the hospital’s intensive care units, in particular the ICU of the Respiratory Failure Center and the ICU of the University Pulmonary Clinic.

Another 31 respirators will be handed over to the Ministry of Health in coming days, Papastratos added.

Health Minister Vasilis Kikilias thanked the company for its contribution to strengthening the country’s public health system during this critical time.


ATHENS - A regulation in an omnibus bill will allow repatriated Greeks from Albania and the former Soviet Union to receive full national pensions, Labor and Social Protection Minister Kostis Hatzidakis said during a discussion in Greek Parliament on Tuesday.
