Araji: ” Medicine loss will have dire consequences.”

Representative Assem Araji tweeted: “People’s health will be lost by the discrepancy between the drug subsidy figures, Banque du Liban talked about today, and the importers who reject these figures. Each party blames the other one, and the victim is the citizen. The drug rationalization plan is ready and was discussed in the Parliamentary Health Committee Yesterday. The loss of medicine, if it continues, will have dire consequences on everyone.

Lebanon has been witnessing the worst economic and livelihood crises in its recent history, where shortages are prevailing on all aspects, in a time the Lebanese pound has lost more than 90% of its value, while officials are still playing the game of mutual blaming.
