On January 25th, a video circulated on the Internet.In this video, a woman in white was very furious and accused the hospital, security guards and ticket touts in her high pitched voice.  In Beijing, she said, ticket touts resold the original registration fee of 300 yuan at 4500 yuan. As a consequence, many sick could't register to see a doctor.


这个女孩是一个普通的大学生,她去北京的大医院为生病的妈妈挂号,结果挂号的地方被票贩子围住,真正来看病的人却排不上队。

This girl is an ordinary college student, she went to a hospital to register for her sick mother,which is really well-known in the capital. However, it came out that the registration office were surrounded by ticket touts, and the patients are hopeless to queue.


在以前,票贩子就是帮人买票的,但现在,他们大量抢购火车票、汽车票,让其他人买不到票,然后就可以高价卖出自己手中的票。

In the past, ticket touts' job is only to help people buy tickets. Now, they are snapping up train tickets, bus tickets, making other people hard to buy even one ticket. After that, they can resell the tickets in hands at high price.


上海人又把“票贩子”叫做“黄牛”,因为他们抢票的场面就像黄牛群一样混乱。虽然中国一直在打击“黄牛”,但效果并不好。

Shanghai natives call the ticket tout as scalper. Because the scene they get the tickets is like chaos of scalpers. Although China has been in the fight against "scalpers", the results was still not good so far.


人们都说在中国看病难,看病贵,现在甚至有“黄牛”出现在医院,让人痛心。

但好消息是,警方已经在北京的几个大医院抓获了12名票贩子,尽力为人们维护良好的就诊环境。
