South Korea’s trainee doctors have vowed to continue their strike in protest against the government’s plans for healthcare reform.
The Korean Intern Resident Association made the announcement Sunday following a vote at an overnight meeting of its emergency committee.
The announcement comes after the National Assembly proposed a deal for doctors to return to work, in exchange for them conditionally backing the government’s healthcare reforms until COVID-19 stabilizes and then renegotiating later.
The doctors claim the conditional proposal shows the government does not have a willingness to resolve the fundamental cause of the dispute.
The government said Monday that it will open a support call-center this afternoon for citizens to get medical help or file a complaint due to the strike.
The center is open from 9 AM to 6 PM during the walkout.
