The hospital syndicate representative Sleiman Haroun told MTV that they can’t access their funds from the Lebanese banks. As a result, they aren’t able to buy and restock medicine.
He claims they need roughly 200 billion LL (~$4.25 million) per month just to cover the cost of restocking medicine.
He said that the stock in some hospitals will run out as soon as next week and they will have to ask patients to bring their own medicine with them.
The unofficial capital control by Lebanese banks has prevented millions of people and businesses from accessing their deposits since late 2019.
