At least seventeen people have lost their lives due to lack of timely treatment at different public hospitals across Punjab.
On the other hand, Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) is observing black day in protest against doctors’ arrest.
However, OPDs of several hospitals including Mayo Hospital, Services Hospital, Ganga Ram Hospital, PIC, Jinnah Hospital and General Hospital, began functioning.
At least 150 army doctors along with other senior doctors have started working at OPDs of the province’s hospitals but limited number of doctors could not provide relief to a mass of patients.
