Barcelona (CNA).- The Catalan Parliament unanimously approved this Wednesday a law to give health care to 60,000 Catalans who were previously excluded from the service. The Catalan Government calculates that in Catalonia there are approximately 0.7% of people who do not have access to health care, the majority being liberal professionals who do not pay social security, members of religious groups, and other socially excluded groups.

The Minister for Health, Marina Geli, defended the law in a moment of crisis, as most of the collectives that benefit from it are those most affected by today’s adverse economic context.
