It has been over a month but for the people affected by the Attica wildfires back in July, the ordeal is not over.
One more hospitalised victim gave into their burns last night in Athens, lifting the number of dead from the deadliest fire to have occurred in the country to 99.
The deceased is reportedly a 26-year-old woman who was being treated in Evangelismos hospital.
While more burn victims are still hospitalised with a few remaining in intensive care, many residents of the affected area are still in shambles having not received any help from the local or state government.
Several Mati and neighbouring areas residents have said in a letter that many of the promised public works to restore damages have not started, Kathimerini reports.
Those that have are moving “at an alarmingly slow pace jeopardizing our safety,” the residents’ committee complained stressing that many amongst them have yet to receive the initial relief aid to cover their immediate needs.
