Doctors, nurses condemn withdrawal of corona health allowance.

KARACHI -- OPDs in different public sector hospitals in Karachi were closed for two hours (10 am to 12 noon) on Monday as part of token strike against provincial government's decision to stop, with immediate effect the Covid health allowance for doctors, nurses and paramedics.

The protestors taking exception to the announcement made by Sindh government said it was beyond their comprehension as dedicated 'Corona Wards' were still functional in several of its hospitals, while a resurgence of the viral infection was also being reported by the authorities themselves.

'We are the front line soldiers who in realisation of our responsibilities have been serving the Covid patients, while many of our colleagues also lost their lives in the endeavour to save lives of concerned patients since March this year,' said Dr Lala Rukh associated with Government Sindh Hospital.
