All medical services have resumed at Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital

The medical interns and nurses of Cox's Bazar Sadar Hospital have ended their strike after four days.

Cox's Bazar Bangladesh Medical Association (BMA) General Secretary Dr Mahbubur Rahman  stated this in a press release issued on Monday.

The hospital resumed its daily operations on Monday morning.

In the press release, Dr Mahbubur Rahman wrote: "In collaboration with the highest level of the central Awami League, the deputy commissioner, the district superintendent of police and the district BMA, the strike by the medical interns has been postponed." 

He said the decision to end the strike was made after coming to an understanding with the interns—with the aid of BMA authorities and the divisional director of Health Department's Chittagong unit—at a meeting on Sunday night.

On April 4, relatives of a patient attacked and vandalized the hospital claiming faulty treatment as a patient died while being treated.

Three doctors and a few nurses were injured in the incident, as a result the interns of the hospital went on a strike. All services at the hospital remained suspended—including the emergency unit—for four consecutive days.

After a case was filed against the attackers on Sunday, and assurances were given that maximum action will taken against them, the decision to withdraw the strike was taken.

Civil Surgeon Dr Md Abdul Matin declined to talk to reporters over the phone about the matter.
