We’ve lost 30 doctors to Covid-19 -NMA

President of Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, Prof. Innocent Ujah has disclosed that the medical sector lost up to 30 doctors to the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.

The renowned Consultant Obstetrician and Gynecologist also lamented the non-payment of their death benefits and insurance up till now by the government despite the fact they died in the line of duty.

Besides, Professor Ujah lamented that doctors, especially in the South East were owed up to two years salaries a development he said had already affected their moral and called on the affected states to defray the backlog.

He said: “NMA right from the beginning of the pandemic has been very proactive, through advocacy and constructive engagements, dialogue and conversations.”
