November 18, 2020

THESSALONIKI — "I bow down before the greatness of of these people," Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias said on Wednesday regarding the 10 nurses who voluntarily transferred from Crete to Thessaloniki to help their colleagues in the battle with Covid-19.

"Last week I stated from Thessaloniki that all of Greece is now one health region and each health region will support the other," the minister said. "Ten nurses from the hospitals of Crete, who specialise in Intensive Care Units, are expected to arrive in Thessaloniki from Heraklion," he added.

Kikilias underlined: "I bow down and make a commitment to them, and to all the people of the national health system who are fighting heroically in this unprecedented pandemic, that we will stand by them and actively support them, as they stand by and support us day and night for months now."
