Punjab doctors end protest after govt promises protective equipment

The Grand Health Alliance ended its protest on Saturday after the Punjab health secretary assured them that their demands would be fulfilled. The alliance was demanding that the government provide them with personal protective equipment to prevent healthcare workers from contracting the novel coronavirus. They had been asking for the equipment for more than two weeks.

The health secretary assured the doctors that the government will form committees to ensure the provision of protective equipment. Doctors treating coronavirus patients will also be provided hotel-like facilities at the hospitals.
