"No one will be endangered and surgeries that must be carried out will not be postponed," Health Minister Thanos Plevris assured viewers on Wednesday in an interview with SKAI TV, adding that the health ministry is in talks with private clinics so that surgeries can be carried out there if necessary, ANA reports.

In particular, for Attica, he underlined that "there is no change in the planned surgeries" and added that yesterday's letter to the hospitals, in fact, "gives the administrations the option, if necessary, to reduce surgeries".
