The Health Services Board has fired 211 more doctors in addition to 70 dismissed earlier due to absenteeism.

The health sector workers of the country continue striking over low wages, demanding the government to index their monthly payments to the US dollar. Most of the medics claim they could not return to work as they had no money to live on.

The HSB found such a behavior violating the laws, so those involved should be brought to book.

The regulator conducted 213 disciplinary hearings finding 211 people guilty of absenteeism.

According to the company’s statement, only three doctors made their appearance in person. Two of them were sent home to give the HSB more time for investigation.
