100% occupancy of coronavirus wards in many hospitals

In a difficult situation, hospitals in Northern Greece, where the occupancy rate of coronavirus wards reaches 100%. The Ministry of Health has already established partnerships with private clinics to treat patients with COVID and other illnesses. If the high incidence rate continues, it is possible that the practice of reducing the admission of patients with other diseases will continue in order to free up energy for patients with COVID-19.

With the amendment, the ministry encouraged private doctors to be hired by government agencies of the Greek Ministry of Health (surcharge for work 250 euros). “We are ready, if necessary, and if these incentives do not work, move on to other procedures that will involve the mandatory presence of doctors in the system,” Health Minister Thanos Pleuris said yesterday. He added that the suspension measure for unvaccinated health workers will last until the end of the year when it will be revised, adding that contracts will not be renewed for unvaccinated employees.

In addition to the NHA, 6,500 specialists

Recall that about 6,500 medical workers were suspended from work in the NHS for two months, due to the refusal of compulsory vaccination. Doctors describe the intense pressure that government hospitals are under. As reported yesterday, after another difficult vigil, AHEPA in Thessaloniki resembled a natural disaster: after receiving 160 cases with COVID symptoms, 35 confirmed cases and 20 suspected cases were hospitalized in 24 hours.

NHS staff have reached the limit of their physical endurance. Typical is the case of the director of the covid department of the Main Hospital, Larisa, who, standing in front of the television cameras to report the pandemic, felt very bad and left, supported by his colleagues. The examinations did not reveal any problems, the illness was explained by severe fatigue and many hours of continuous work.
