An American in China

Interesting Comment to a Post

This is a comment from the author of one of my favorite websites here. She is commenting on the post I put up yesterday about dialing 119 for emergencies in China.

“If they made it easy, then people might actually use it. Besides, if it works like the ambulance system, you have to have money to pay the ambulance driver/workers up front before you can be taken to the hospital. Then, once at the hospital, you have to pay for treatment before it’s administered. I’d say, most folks in China can’t afford the cost of emergency services.
