NNA – “We are looking for a hospital that receives a patient whose oxygen level has decreased and there is no hospital capable of receiving him. Based on the principle that health is above politics, and we do not want to talk about an issue that can be explained in politics, but we will not be able to remain silent anymore,” Head of the Kataeb Party Sami Gemayel said on Saturday, via his Facebook account.
Gemayel described the vaccination campaign in Lebanon as the “the worst and slowest”, adding that “we are the only country other than Pakistan that sells the vaccine for $38, while it is clear on the Russia vaccine website that its cost is only ten dollars.”
“What is happening is unacceptable. The whole country is open, with its commercial centers and restaurants, while there are no empty beds in hospitals,” he went on, criticizing concerned parties in this file.
“Of course, we want to cooperate with the private sector on condition that you pay for the vaccine so that it is distributed free of charge and not used to humiliate people,” Gemayel stressed.
“You are responsible for every person who dies at the gates of hospitals, through meaningless and ineffective decisions,” the resigned deputy underscored
Finally, he appealed to the President of the Republic, the Caretaker Prime Minister and Minister of Health and all concerned parties to end this “farce.”
