Six doctors of Kuwait-Bangladesh Friendship Hospital, which is dedicated for treating COVID-19 patients, have been suspended after they allegedly expressed inability to treat coronavirus patients and remained absent without any prior notice.
A circular of Directorate of Health Services, signed by its Director (Admin) Dr. Md Belal Hossain made the disclosure today.
The doctors did not come to the hospital for past few days, though the government cancelled the leave of doctors due to the coronavirus situation in the country.
Earlier, the hospital authorities sent a letter with the names of the doctors to the Health Ministry seeking actions against them.
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina recently expressed anger after a Dhaka University student died without being attended by doctors at a number of hospitals.
The Kuwait-Bangladesh Friendship Government Hospital is designated the only dedicated infirmary for treating coronavirus infected persons.
So far 30 people died and 482 people were infected in Bangladesh with the COVID-19.
