Facebook user Philip Loh said his son was admitted to a hospital in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia after a road accident. His son sustained an injury on his left arm, which was punctured with a big hole damaging his nerves and muscles. The injuries required a specialist surgeon to operate on him, and he required the care of nurses and other medical professionals.

After all the medical care, Philip was pleasantly surprised that his son’s hospitalisation bill came out to be only Ringgit Malaysia 31 (S$10). He said: “You will never find another country like Malaysia providing such wonderful medical care for its people!”

Another Facebook user, Razali Raihayu, had earlier shared how he too paid RM 31 for his father’s radiation therapy.
