Saudi girl gets injection worth SR 8 million for free

A young Saudi girl had been admitted to the King Faisal Specialist Hospital where she was diagnosed with a rare disease named spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The treatment of the disease required a dose of a life-saving injection named Zolgensma.

The unfortunate thing about Zolgensma is that it is the world’s most expensive injection which costs about SR 8 million ($2.1 million). The hospital, however, had been generous enough to provide the dose of Zolgensma free of cost.

Zolgensma - The world's most expensive medicine

According to the father of the girl, Massad Al Sharani, the hospital did not charge them any fee for the injection. In a tweet, which is viral at the moment, the father expressed his gratitude towards the Saudi government who deems human life precious.

Zolgensma is a life-saving drug and is as expensive as $2.1 million and is known as the world’s most expensive life-saving drug. Spinal Muscular Atrophy makes the spine so weak that the person is unable to walk or sit.
