THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The protest of doctors over the suspension of COVID nodal officer Dr Aruna in connection with maggot infestation of a patient gathers more steam as doctors are set to stage protest in other medical colleges. Organizations of doctors, irrespective of politics, allege that the reluctance to withdraw the suspension will harm the morale of doctors. As part of intensifying the protest, doctors in all medical colleges will boycott outpatient treatment indefinitely from Tuesday. As a preface to it, the doctors will boycott outpatient treatment in medical college on Monday from 8 am to 10 am.

The strike will be held in such a way that COVID, emergencies are not affected. Online classes in medical colleges will be put on hold.

Govt Medical College Teachers' Association (KGMCTA) leaders said that COVID nodal officers wrote to respective principals that they are stepping down. A relay hunger strike staged by the joint action council in front of the Thiruvananthapuram medical college will conclude at 8 am on Monday.
