India maybe

Re: P.M. Tuilaepa medivac 

What about the India plan? Has it been amended?

According to the Prime Minister referring patients to India is much cheaper than sending them to New Zealand under the existing referral program. 

“It is close to $20 million tala to send people to New Zealand for treatment. If it is cheaper to send them to India, then why should we still send them to New Zealand?” 

The Prime Minister explained, “We know it’s far, but it is cheaper.”
