More economic unrest in Greece affect health care services

Police had to use pepper spray, batons and tear gas to clear out protestors who forced their way into a government building to protest austerity measures. Approximately 30 people were arrested in the incident. Meanwhile, trains and ferries were halted and hospital staffing was cut to a minimum today as transport workers and doctors went on strike to protest austerity measures. Travellers should always exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without prior notice. Visitors with pre-existing medical conditions that require urgent care should check with local hospitals regarding availability of assistance.
