Zero, zero, zero

witchround

A report from “Harvard Medical School via Canada :

“Statistics for 2009 compiled by Harvard Medical School and the U.S. Census Bureau show that, in the insurance-dominated U.S. healthcare system, 45,000 Americans died because they had no health insurance; 922,819 Americans went bankrupt because of medical expenses; 50,700,000 Americans have no health insurance.

The comparable figures from the Canadian health-care system are zero, zero and zero.

Which health-care system would you rather have?.”

And from Harvard Science:

“The Institute of Medicine, using older studies, estimated that one American dies every 30 minutes from lack of health insurance,” remarked David
Himmelstein, study co-author, associate professor of medicine at Harvard
Medical School, and a primary care physician at Cambridge Health Alliance.
“Even this grim figure is an underestimate — now one dies every 12 minutes.”

The full report can be read here:

What about the UK?

Would comparable UK stats today be zero, zero, zero?

And if so, for how long?
