79 Quetta doctors given bail; strike continues

QUETTA: The strike of doctors in Balochistan entered the 36th day on Wednesday against the non-recovery of Dr Saeed Khan while 79 doctors were released on bail.

The Bolan Medical Complex and Civil Hospital Quetta wore completely deserted looks on 36th day despite the appeals from authorities for ending the strike.

The major hospitals which include Children's Hospital Quetta, TB Sanatorium, Shiekh Zayyed Hospital, Tariq Hospital, National Hospital, Akram Hospital, Christian Hospital Quetta, Al-Khair Hospital, Sajid Hospital, and all other private clinics remained closed.
