Doctors of Bir Hospital staged a sit-in demanding the risk allowance. The government had announced a risk allowance for frontline workers who worked for the prevention and reduction of coronavirus infection, but the health workers have not received it yet.
The doctors have stopped all services except emergency. They have been protesting since February 2, insisting that the service will not be resumed until the administration addresses the problem.
