What are the medical leave wages and how is it calculated??

I need to take a medical leave due to the injury I suffered while working at our company. I am afraid that the compensations are not enough to support me and my family, and make ends meet during my absence from work since I am not getting my regular monthly salary. What are medical leave wages and is it calculated?

    For this amount of outpatient medical leave up to 14 days or this amount of hospitalisation leave up to 60 days, your medical leave wages are calculated based on your full average monthly earnings, but for this amount of outpatient medical leave up to 14 days or this amount of hospitalisation leave up to 60 days, your medical leave wages are calculated based on 2/3 of your average monthly earnings. Medical leave wages are calculated based on your average monthly earnings which is computed based on your earnings over the past 12 months before the accident date. Generally, it includes overtime pay, but excludes transport allowances and reimbursements.
