Not long ago news people dying as a result of being turned away by hospitals for lack of beds rocked this nation. It was the talk of town and current and previous governments were blamed for the problem of not having enough beds in our hospitals.

But like all hot issues, they die out usually because the mainstream media found another hot selling topic to focus on not because a solution was found. Sometimes it turns out nothing was even done about it.

Picture of an old woman, who from her posture was unconscious sitting on a plastic chair being administered oxygen and a young man receiving intravenous fluid while sitting on an emergency wheelchair at Korlebu Polyclinic indicates one thing, the menace of NO BED SYNDROME still lurks.

To be honest it never left or even pretended to, simply because not a thing was done about it when the issue caught public attention with the corresponding outpour of anger after a young man narrated on social media the ordeal his father went through before finally dying in his hands while to seek treatment at various hospitals.

This is goes to remind us that as a nation we are too timid to demand with authority the basic things needed to sustain the only thing that for most is all they have. LIFE.
