Event

The Independent Syndicate of Public sector physicians has called on doctors to strike nationwide on Wednesday, November 4, and Thursday, November 5.

The strike action may affect medical services at healthcare facilities and hospitals; emergency care services will likely still be available. A heightened security presence and localized disruption to transport are possible in the vicinity of associated demonstrations.
