«According to the report, over 25,000 medical institutions provided remote treatment to 13.79 million people from February 2020 to January 2023. Of the 36.61 million treatments administered via telehealth, most treatments (29.25 million) were home treatments for COVID-19 cases while about 1.36 million treatment cases were first-time visits and 5.14 million cases received prescriptions following consultations.»

«The report pointed out that most telemedicine services were conducted by neighbourhood clinics (accounting for 93.6% of all participating healthcare providers and 86.2% of all recorded treatments). Large hospitals previously aired their concerns about shouldering most of the telemedicine demand but this had not been the case at all, the MOHW noted.»
