70% of Beijing Hospitals Have Unqualified Staff, 60% Have No Sterilization Labs

China is like The Plague, it just keeps surviving. With the pollution and lack of hygiene, it is amazing that this place still exists.

The hospitals are a nightmare and not suitable for humans, which is proven by the snippet below. My personal experience with Chinese hospitals has taught me that its better to gnaw off an injured limb than entrust my health to a Chinese doctor. Case in point, I went to a clinic/witchery here with what had to be a cross between black lung, TB, and lung cancer. I was hacking up blood and my temperature was about 102. After checking me, the Chinese doctor diagnosed that I had ‘fire inside’….

No shit, the guy said, ‘you have fire inside’.

While I am no doctor, I am relatively sure that a clinical diagnosis of ‘fire inside’ has to fall short of a clear and actionable clinical diagnosis. After all, what is ‘fire inside’ and how does one cure it?

Read the following so you too, can see the horror of living in China.
Excerpt

“Nearly 70% of medical clinics in Beijing employ staff who have no experience of treating patients and half employ caregivers with no medical education background, according to a survey conducted by the Beijing Municipal Health Inspection Bureau, reports state broadcaster CCTV.

The survey shows nearly 60% of clinics in the city have no sterilization facilities, which puts their patients at high risk of contracting liver diseases.”
