China fact (estimate) of the day

The China Medical Doctors’ Association recently found that 13 per cent of doctors surveyed had been physically attacked in the past year.

The FT article by Andrew Ward and Patti Waldmeir is interesting throughout, here is another bit:

Doctors are paid on average one-fifth the amount received by their counterparts in Europe and are required to see up to 150 patients a day.

Overall the Chinese health care system is considered to be extremely corrupt.
