Why do we said it is astronomical? Because according to some science buff, zero is infinite.
Ok, we apologise and admit that it is a click bait just to get your attention.
But nonetheless, This is a real-life case. We felt that many Singaporeans will be interested to know. As such, we are sharing this post on our site to keep Singaporean informed about the Singapore Healthcare system.

What Singaporeans Say about Singapore Healthcare system?
Yvonne Sahnam-Chin I had a dear friend who have since passed on.. Her hospital bill was $250k for 2 months stay at the ICU. Her husband is the sole breadwinner, they have 3 school going children and aged parents to look after. Her husband could ill afford such expensive hospital bill so the social welfare group stepped in and took care of their bills.
Imagine how distressing that must be. A government who stepped in and give help to those in need. As a friend, I was so relieved to know this. What more can u ask for from a government who cares??· 81 ·Likes
Sebastian Kang The negative mindsets and naysayers … when dumped with large hospital bill (s) … may have been “self employed” and / or “remain unemployed” have not been contributing to the CPF (the need for immediate cash rather than save for rainy days) … even if these negative mindsets and naysayers , receive such good benefits , will you really hear them talking or spreading the good news (it’s in their blood – everything the Government or PAP does is considered bad for Singapore) … Thanks for showing and sharing· 76 ·Likes

Kaishian Ho SDP , Chee SC and other who living in LaLa land will find fault in our government . They just keep looking for little crack and magnify them many fold . Even Minister Tan CJ’s visit to cardboard collectors also being complained and used as political issue to attack PAP .· 30 ·Likes
