Varoufakis: Requisition Private Health Units in Thessaloniki Right Now

November 12, 2020

ATHENS — Opposition MeRA25 leader Yanis Varoufakis on Thursday pointed out the immediate need to requisition private health units of Thessaloniki, speaking in parliament during the debate on the pandemic.

"The requisitioning of the private sector in health, especially in Thessaloniki, should be done today before this debate ends," he said.

"It is outrageous to beg the private sector. Requisition this moment," Varoufakis said.

"It is not the time to disagree over the figures, we have an exponential growth of the pandemic, we are not here to argue," he said, adding that "in March we supported you because, unlike other conservative prime ministers in Europe, you moved fast. I had told you, however, to use the months of the first lockdown to improve the health system and you did not do it".

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
