МMedics are on strike

The doctors also joined the strike.

Doctors of the National Cardiology Center are going to stop all routine operations in protest against violence and arrests of medics, Belsat correspondent has learnt.

Several workers were detained in the hospital, so colleagues called to stop non-urgent operations until the doctor is released. Several other colleagues have disappeared — they were detained right outside their homes. About 100 medics took part in the action. They were holding the posters “We are against violence”.
