Sudan doctors’ strike into second day

grace

n Sudan, a nationwide doctors’ strike for better working conditions has entered its second day with media suggesting that it appears to be taking place across the country.

According to the central committee behind the strike, medical staff in 56 public hospitals around the country have stopped work.

The strike follows a recent spate of attacks against doctors and other medical staff. They are calling for a better working environment and more basic equipment.

On social media, some people are sharing pictures of medical equipment and medicines being distributed from government stores.

Many are ridiculing the response suggesting that these things have always been available and yet the government has held them back.

This tweet says: “Oh my God, look at this. Suddenly the earth opens and things appear.”
