In a viral video, an American woman named Mackenzie, who is a part of the vlogging duo-UNSTUK with mac & keen has recently expressed her admiration for Indian healthcare system. Sharing her experience in Instagram, the woman opened up about her experience.

During their trip to India, Vlogger’s British Boyfriend Keenan became ill in the country. In the beginning, she was worried about the process and the cost, but soon her worries were lessened. Due to local friend’s help.

Later, she expressed her surprise, that how easy it was to get a medical help in India.

Unlike United states, where getting an appointment for lab tests took weeks or even months, in India, patient can secure tests at their convenience. It was nurse who visited their accommodation, to get samples and within same day, they got the results.

However, she was also anxious about the cost, anxious it would be high, but to her shock, this whole process including tests and initial medication costed only $14 (which is 1,100 in rupees).

Afterward, she praised the Indian healthcare system saying ‘I’m Blown Away, this is incredible.’
