Amidst coronavirus scare, Nigerian doctors begin strike



Nigeria’s health workers have embarked on a strike in the middle of a pandemic.

The Association of Resident Doctors (ARD), Abuja chapter, announced their decision moments after the third case of Covid19 was confirmed in Nigeria’s commercial capital, Lagos.

The doctors said they deliberated extensively on the health threat posed by the coronavirus scare, their work conditions, and patient care before arriving at the “difficult decision.”



In a statement signed by the president, Roland Aigbovo, the association said the mass action followed the failure of the FCT administration to pay them their basic salaries for more than two months.
