Strike Deadlock Paralyses Zimbabwe's Health Sector

The government has warned that junior doctors will face disciplinary action if they want to return to work, with Acting President Constantino Chiwenga accusing the medics of "gambling with people's lives". More than 500 junior doctors have been on strike for nearly a month with the Health Services Board suspending them after the job action was declared illegal by the labour court.
