RHUH’s CEO Firas Abiad warned back in August that the hospital is running very low on its medical supplies due to the financial crisis, and that they will be empty-handed very soon if the pandemic spirals out of control.
Today, RHUH was informed by distributors that they will stop delivering medical supplies following the decisions taken by the syndicate. Given that the hospital has been the primary one for treating COVID-19 patients, and the drastic increase in positive cases in the past few weeks, this will have dire consequences on hospitals and more importantly patients.
Once again, those ruling this country are taking us all hostages, from the patients, the hospitals to the suffocating businesses due to the dollar shortage. Let’s hope this matter is resolved ASAP for everyone’s sake!
