Health workers demand early release of Covid risk allowance

City Reporter

The health workers of Islamabad’s government hospitals were on strike on Monday against the non-release of the COVID-19 risk allowance.

The doctors and the paramedic staff of PIMS, Polyclinic, CDA, FGH and others shut down Outpatient Departments (OPDs) in protest to force the federal government for early release of COVID-19 risk allowance to them.

The paramedics have also halted the COVID vaccination drive and vowed to continue their strike in the government hospitals until the release of the COVID-19 risk allowance.

Earlier in the month, the health ministry had decided to disburse COVID-19 risk allowance only to front-line health workers in federal hospitals and institutions.
