LAHORE - Young Doctors Association Punjab continued strike at OPDs of major hospitals in the province on Tuesday to protest against attacks on doctors, causing huge inconvenience to visiting patients and their families.

Strike of young doctors at OPDs also affected service delivery at indoors and admission of new patients besides causing cancellation of hundreds of scheduled surgeries. The strike caused patients to go to emergency for treatment, increasing burden on already overloaded departments of all the major hospitals. YDA Punjab has vowed to continue strike at OPDs at 11 am daily to press for the demand of making proper security arrangements at public sector hospitals.
