In this regard, the Municipal Council in Kotel adopted a declaration against the closure of the hospital and asked the principal - the Ministry of Health - for the return of staff to it, BNR reported.

The Chairman of the Municipal Council, Hristina Cholakova, announced that the specialists had left because of unpaid salaries.
