Doctors In Coronavirus Fight To Begin Strike Next Week

Front line workers in the fight against Coronavirus, the doctors are planning to embark on strike starting from next week.

This is coming after, the National Association of Resident Doctors, the umbrella body of all doctors working in government health facilities, issued a notice of strike effective Monday 15th June.

The National President of NARD, Dr Aliyu Sokomba, said this in an official letter with reference number NARD/SG/2019-2020/070620/246.

The letter read in part, “The strike shall, therefore, be total and indefinite. No service of any kind, be it emergency, care at COVID-19 treatment centres shall be exempted and members including all resident doctors, medical officers below the rank of principal medical officer, and house officers are expected to be part of the strike.”

NARD said the plight of its members in state health facilities was sometimes worse than those at the federal institutions.
