Araji: The patient is being the victim

The Head of the Parliamentary Health Committee, MP Assem Araji, confirmed that Lebanon is witnessing emigration of doctors that is increasing on a daily basis due to the deterioration of the Lebanese currency and the decrease in doctors’ income. Araji explained during a radio interview that the only possible solution is to form a government as soon as possible in order to save all sectors.

Regarding vaccinations, Araji pointed out that the British Medicines Agency had issued a recommendation to give AstraZeneca to those over 40 years old.

Araji said in a tweet that “ Solutions between insurance institutions and the Hospital Syndicate urged by the Parliamentary Health Committee have failed due to the inability of the insurance institutions to raise the tariff of services, because they will collapse. The patient is being the victim, because he will have to assume the fees.”
