The Board of Directors of the ESY Physicians’ Association of the Larissa University Hospital, after the catastrophic floods that took place, irreparably affecting the citizens of Thessaly and the natural environment, immediately requests the activation of the state mechanism, with the aim of protecting the People’s Health.
