Indian Medical Association (IMA) will lead a protest of healthcare workers on June 18 against the assault on healthcare professionals with the ‘Save the Saviour’ slogan. No hospitals will be closed. Doctors will bear a black badge, black mask, or black shirt: IMA President Dr JA Jayalal.
“Doctors serving in Covid wards have been beaten & brutally assaulted in Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, UP, and Karnataka. It is the responsibility of govt to ensure the safety & security of frontline workers who are working in a pandemic,” Dr JA Jayalal said.
“We demand that govt bring a central protection law with provisions under CrPC & IPC and also ensure that all govt and private hospital have a mandatory security structure,” the IMA President added.
