Poor Health Conditions in S. Korea, Product of Unpopular Rule-KCNA

Poor Health Conditions in S. Korea, Product of Unpopular Rule

Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) -- The Seoul National University Hospital, the Severance Hospital and other hospitals in south Korea were recently disclosed to have conducted clinical tests on patients without guarantee of their lives. The story stunned the people.

Such illegal acts clearly indicate the poor health conditions of the south Korean society where money is everything.

The poor are denied hospital treatment in south Korea with medical treatment fees steadily rising.

A general medical check-up costs 100-400 U.S. dollars. Hospital charges a day in big hospitals of Seoul are estimated at 100-300 U.S. dollars on average.

In 2009 when bird flu swept across south Korea hospitals demanded 200 000 won for one medical examination.

After the emergence of the present "government" the number of infection cases at hospitals reached 300 000 a year and the ensuing yearly mortality rate 15 000.

The poor suffer from all kinds of diseases as they can hardly get timely treatment. Such poor health conditions of south Korea are an inevitable product of the unpopular rule by the puppet authorities.

All facts go to prove that the healthy life of the south Korean people is unthinkable as long as the present puppet authorities are allowed to stay in power.
