The Centre’s decision to discontinue the high value `500 and `1,000 denomination notes turned out to be a major blow for the healthcare sector in Kerala, which has no dearth of super speciality hospitals.


Though the exact figures of the fallout were not available, authorities at most of the major hospitals in Kochi admitted that demonetisation had affected them badly as people put off hospital visits unless there was a major health scare.

While the public thronged the Primary Health Centres(PHC) across the state,there was no such scenario in Kochi.
