The absence of complete health coverage in the United States means that hospital expenses caused by the coronavirus pandemic are borne by patients admitted to hospitals for COVID-19. The middle ‘The New York Times‘has calculated that, in fact, each American citizen who has had to be hospitalized for COVID will have to pay on average more than $ 23,000 (almost 18,900 euros).

Each person who has been entered will pay more or less depending on the state in which you live or the type of insurance contracted. Although there are times when the numbers are small, in many cases it is necessary to pay for the entire treatment, as has happened to Irena Schulz.

$ 1 million in treatments

Irena Schulz lost her father to coronavirus after spending weeks in the ICU. Now, the hospital and the insurer are demanding $ 1 million in treatment. Namely, more than 880,000 euros. In fact, some finance companies are already seizing the properties of those infected or their relatives.

So far, more than 600 people have done it and, as a result, the newspaper points out that they should be infected in the United States and go through the hospital has an average cost of $ 23,489 (about 19,282 euros).
