Doctors strike in Quetta for the seventh day


Doctors continued their strike for the seventh day on Tuesday, as their abducted senior colleague, Dr Ghulam Rasool, has still not been recovered yet. Doctors in Balochistan including Quetta, boycotted work in OPDs in all government and private hospitals, but attended patients in emergency and casualty wards. The call to strike came from Pakistan Medical Association (Balochistan) and other doctors’ organizations. According to the PMA, the strike will continue till Dr Rasool is recovered. Due to the closed OPDs in government hospitals and the non-availability of doctors, patients had suffered a lot.
