Modern medicine rarely strives to radically cure the disease, rather to transfer it from an acute stage to a chronic one :-))))

Using more expensive equipment and medicines (not the fact that it is more effective).

In Germany, for example, they are often treated not depending on what sore is, but depending on what kind of wallet the patient has ... or insurance :-)))))

Happy people are usually not are sick ..., but they will never stop hurting too much.

Perhaps I am a utopian, but I would like to believe that this is being said sincerely.

I can say with confidence that in hospitals abroad, if they say this, then sincerely. There are more than enough patients, but not enough doctors (in Canada, in Germany, this is easier) - sometimes you need to make an appointment several weeks in advance.

This is slyness. Each hospital, each department has monthly plans for the number of patients treated. If suddenly all patients recover and no longer get sick, then these plans will not be carried out. This will entail cut funding for the hospital in a month. The ministry will punish the chief physician both morally and financially. He will punish all doctors for this both morally (by shouting at meetings) and materially - non-payment of bonuses. It will be hysterical to demand from his subordinates to fulfill the plan by any means (“At least go home and look for these patients! At least print leaflets and invite people to our hospital - I don’t care! You flunked the whole plan for me !!!”). By the way, such words and now can be periodically heard from some heads of hospitals when periods of low incidence come.

Further absence of patients will entail a reduction in bed capacity, staff reduction (nurses, orderlies, accountants, locksmiths, janitors, etc.), and the closure of entire hospitals. A whole army of unemployed doctors will appear. Everyone will enthusiastically remember the times when people were constantly sick and provided them with work. So no doctor is interested in completely curing patients.
