Only two hours a day.....
At work the generator was idle ,some times I am in the middle of an operation ,and the electricity is suddenly out of work, we can't continue ,the patient is under local anesthesia , and as faster the operation can be done ,the less post operative complications could occur.….
Of course many other things are badly affected due to the lack of electricity, like those who need it in their work ,as in the factories , ,computers of the banks and others, not necessarily there are generators everywhere , although they are common nowadays….
As the Iraqis are well-known to be chaotic , you can (or probably you can't) imagine how the things are in the crowded streets without traffic lights ….can you? ….
I will leave the rest bad effects like the "economical" for your imaginations…..
