Junior doctors boycott duties in AP, demand Covid incentive, insurance cover
Junior doctors under the banner of the Andhra Pradesh Junior Doctors’ Association (APJUDA) boycotted duties in government hospitals across the state on Wednesday, demanding the AP government to provide Covid incentives and insurance cover for them as they are risking their lives and providing treatment to the positive patients.
At Ruia Hospital in Tirupati, they raised slogans in support of their demands. One of the doctors said that the APJUDAs’ other main demand is providing security for junior doctors while on duty. The APJUDAs warned to intensify protest in their justifiable demands are not fulfilled.
