Someone must really like to pay

from here

So a hospital that HAS backups still pays the ransom when they get ransomware because they don't think restoring from backups will be fast enough? (see story)

If your backups aren't good enough or fast enough then you're paying for something you can't use and should find a different solution. If your backups are just fine then you shouldn't need to pay the ransom. There is no good reason to pay for both, and in so doing fund the next wave of attacks by the ransomware purveyor.

Why have backups at all if not for emergencies?
