The following claim on recession in Greece is pretty shocking on its face, but also a little muddy:
Citing OECD data of 2013, the BoG [Bank of Greece] underlines that 79% of the population in Greece was not covered with insurance and therefore without medical and medicine due to long-term unemployment, while self-employed could not afford to pay their social contributions.
Is that really the case that 79% of the Greek population was without health insurance in 2013? I find the number shockingly high given the EU goal of universal coverage etc. Greece, in theory at least, had that already in 2012.
