Famous Chinese actress Li Bingbing 李冰冰 recently struggled with Australia’s healthcare system. While the actress was filming the upcoming Chinese-Australian sci-fi film “The Nest” in Australian earlier last month, she purportedly suffered from a 39-degree fever. After two weeks of not getting better, she suspected she had SARS and visited three Australian hospitals where she had to wait one or two hours to see a doctor.
Li Bingbing was forced to fly back home after Australian doctors’ failure to treat her illness. On her Weibo account, she criticized the nurse’s skills to correctly insert an IV line in her arm and their lack of apologetic attitude, sharing several photos of her blood staining the hospital’s bedsheets. She mentioned the pain in her Weibo update and also wrote: “Missing motherland’s healthcare workers so much”. After 22 days with a high fever Li Bingbing was finally discharge from the hospital in China. However, the actress is still expected to return to Australia for filming.
