Determined to clash head-on with the government over the pandemic issue, SYRIZA appears, with Alexis Tsipras seeking answers to what is so wrong and Greece has recorded far more deaths per million in recent weeks than the rest of its countries. . Of Europe.
At the same time, the main opposition party is demanding that ordered here and now the private clinics, so that not only the National Health System notes the weight of the pandemic, accusing Kyriakos Mitsotakis for another communication show. In Koumoundourou, since the second wave of the pandemic broke out, they claim that the government has failed miserably. Now, however, for several weeks now, the top executives of the party, as well as Alexis Tsipras himself, have been talking about a dangerous situation that has developed in the country, with the sole responsibility of Megaro Maximos.
The vaccination program swamp, cases escape daily, while ECDC ranks Greece at the highest level of concern for the pandemic, as we are the first in deaths per million inhabitants in Western Europe. For all the above, SYRIZA claims that it is not “crooked land”, but the government has been “crookedly arming” for months.
On the one hand, they say, the prime minister has declared the end of the pandemic on his own, resulting in excessive relaxation and on the other hand the NSS was left to its fate, collapsing without recruitment, with exhausted health and interactive patients for admission to ICUs, while Dozens of patients are treated intubated and end up in temporary and understaffed ICUs with an explosion of mortality investigated by Justice.
What about ICUs?
What exactly is happening at hospitals and in the ICUs of the country, with the result that dozens of citizens are lost every day, is the major issue that concerns SYRIZA. The main opposition party has been urging the government for days to answer the question of how many die every day outside the special units.
SYRIZA secretary Dimitris Tzanakopoulos put it in a TV interview yesterday morning. But he did not receive an answer. Thus, on Monday night, Alexis Tsipras submitted a topical question to the Minister of Health, Thanos Plevris, urgently asking him answers to ten critical questions. Among the questions asked by the leader of the official opposition are:
- 1. How many patients have had their lives outside the ICU since the beginning of the pandemic? What is the average length of stay of intubated patients outside the ICU?
- How is the highest mortality rate, in relation to international terms, explained for covid incidents in our country?
As is easily understood, the minister will have to answer whether the allegations of dozens of deaths outside ICU, are true. Also, as reported by Koumoundourou, they will not be satisfied with the answer for the 1,300 ICUs that the country is supposed to have, but they will ask Thanos Plevris to say exactly how many of them are in the NSS and most importantly, how many are only functional – that is, they have the necessary and specialized staff to operate.
Demand here and now of individuals
Another issue raised by SYRIZA is when the government will finally stop playing communication games and put the private health sector in the fight against the pandemic.
Because, as they have repeatedly argued, the Ministry of Health has analyzed all the forces in the famous science of a few dozen private doctors, leaving the clinicians in the safe hour of the great battle. And this is because they are “political friends” of Kyriakos Mitsotakis, as they claim.
SYRIZA calls on the government to stop turning a blind eye to the catastrophic problem and to implement an emergency plan here and now, with the order of all large private clinics and full integration of military hospitals in the central planning of the Ministry of Health . , with the aim of decompressing public hospitals and sharing the burden of hospitalization of patients with coronavirus.
