Doctors have gone on strike and patients are unattended to. Some are left in the hands of clinical officers. Doctors need a salary increase and the government is not budging. Now it is more than a month. The doctor leaders were put in prison but now are released. People are now dying like flies. God help us. Pixabay image

We too had a strike here with Doctors although it was more to do with hours rather than pay although there was some problem about pay being work more hours for less pay! Our government will try and get away with it if they can do. Good luck to the Doctors. I hope the government sees sense. If as you say people are dying like flies they quite clearly your health service is seriously understaffed.

Government should take proper steps for timely treatment for patients so that nobody suffers due to lack of medical care. I hope the strike will end up soon and give relief to those who waiting immediate attention from doctors.
