After the most recent round of budget cuts, which removed 25% of the healthcare funding for the 2nd half of 2009, our healthcare system is rapidly falling apart.
The hospital funding has been cut even worse and currently stands at 43% of the 1st half-year level. 29 local hospitals have been closed in April 2009 or will be closed in September 2009.
And, even the hospitals, which are not closing, are admitting only two categories of patients: people who pay for full cost of treatments themselves or patients who are in life-threatening condition. If someone can't pay, they have to wait until their disease deteriorates to a life-threatening stage.
