As the warning strike embarked upon by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) entered its third day yesterday, the effect is telling on patients, food vendors, recharge card sellers and others operating around hospitals in Lagos.
When LEADERSHIP Weekend visited the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, (LASUTH), it observed that though there were patients around with no doctors to attend to them. A health worker who prefered anonymity said, "The doctors' strike has really affected us.
You would think it was only the doctors that were in this hospital."Also, the food vendors around the hospitals lamented their low patronage owing to the ongoing doctors' strike.
