Attacks against doctors going beyond the limits: IMA warns Govt
IMA has issued a strongly worded statement flagging its concerns over the issue of attacks on doctors in Kerala. In a joint statement issued by IMA President Dr. P T Zacharias and Secretary Dr. Gopikumar P has flagged that attacks against doctors are exceeding all limits.
IMA cannot ignore such intolerable instances and cannot remain a mute spectator, it is pinpointed in a statement.
Referring to the recent incident in which a lady doctor was attacked in Thiruvananthapuram, IMA has raised its concern over attacks against women doctors. Even during the period of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is shocking that people assaulted a woman doctor and tore off her clothes in a state like Kerala, the statement noted.
