There are a lot of people throughout the globe who aren’t willing to get vaccinated for COVID. Only a bit more than half of the planet’s population has been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, as Our World in Data informs us.
According to Yahoo News, those COVID patients from Singapore who have chosen not to get vaccinated will have to pay for the bills incurred by both hospitals and treatment facilities.
The obligation will be imposed starting December 8
However, Health Minister and MTF co-chair Ong Ye Kung still brings some good news. He says that the cost for the bills will still be “highly supported and highly subsidised”.
According to data provided by Singapore’s Ministry of Health, over 80% of the country is fully vaccinated against COVID. Even so, Ong Ye Kung strongly believes that everybody from the Asian country should get vaccinated. He declared, as quoted by Yahoo News:
Hospitals really much prefer not to have to bill these patients at all. But we have to send this important signal to urge everyone to get vaccinated if you are eligible.
As for those who are only partially vaccinated, they will be charged after December 31.
