Lucknow: A flash strike by junior doctors in the King George’s Medical University (KGMU) in Lucknow, has so far claimed the lives of 21 patients in the past three days.
The patients have died either due to lack of medical care or because they were turned away from the KGMU which is the biggest medical facility in the state capital.
KGMU vice chancellor Prof Ravikant said that efforts were being made to resolve the crisis and normalcy was expected to return to KGMU in the next few hours.
The junior doctors went on strike on Tuesday in protest against revision of the criteria for admission to post-graduate courses. They are agitated over cancellation of admissions made in April....
