Opening this thread to follow the meds shortage issues along with smuggling, hoarding and inability to import due to the shortage in USD.

Some articles:





Moreover what are the current restrictions on incoming passengers to bring meds with them for their families?

Are some meds being stored to be sold at the non subsidized price while they were bought with the subsidies causing extra shortages?

It is true, i know it first hand. A lot of hospitals have some of their departments run by residents cause a lot fo their experienced doctors have left the country. Most Lebanese doctors were educated in France and have the French citizenship. Why would they stay in Lebanon and get paid peanuts compared to what they can get elsewhere.
