SYRIZA’s Achtsioglou: The gov’t reduces the funds to the NHS when people are dying outside ICUs

SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance responsible for the economy Effie Achtsioglou sternly attacked the government over its decision to reduce the funds to the National Health System noting that “it is not possible for the government to say that the support to the National Health system is sufficient when our compatriots are intubated and die outside ICUs”.

Speaking to radio Real FM, Achtsioglou said that the government draw up 2022 State budget based on the assumption that we are finishing with the pandemic. This is reflected in the reduction of the state funding to the public health system.

Additionally, she said that 2022 state budget “leaves unprotected the workers, the households and the small and medium sized enterprises”.
