Does China have better healthcare than Japan?
Thomas Lee, Multinational Senior Executive
Japan is a developed country and China is a develo country with GDP per capita 1/4 of Japan.
Japan has overall better healthcare than China and has consistently ranked second in life expectancy only after Hong Ko ng.

China is a very big country. It’s difficult to compare. There are different grades of health care for different tiers of cities. Of course, the smaller cities and towns will not enjoy the facilities in Shanghai, but it has improved a lot since the 90s.
I have never been sick in Japan to compare. Guess I shouldn’t have commented.

I do not know but I doubt if the same amount of healthcare is available for the more then thousand billion persons in China. Like in the USA where POTUS Trump, being a member of the high risk group for CoVid 19, after getting that disease stayed only for less then 2 weeks in hospital while hundreds of thousand US citizens died of CoVid 19. There are rumors he got a treatment not available for the common US citizen.

No, obviously Japan’s is better.
Comparatively, China’s healthcare sy em is friendly to ordinary people, and covered most ordinary health problems. So we can say it’s fair to the patients, but incomplete and somehow not-good-enough to the Doctors.
This is a long journey for China’s healthcare sy em to evolve.

I didn’t think so, but then, with the varying outcomes of the COVID-19 pandemic upon each nation in the world, including Japan and China, it seems China is on par with Japan, if not able to handle things better.
Not even close. For one thing, a large % of Chinese still believes in the pseudo-medicine of Chinese “traditional medicine”,
