New Delhi: The Indian Medical Association (IMA) has written to the Health Ministry, asking for a nationwide lockdown to give a breather to health systems and doctors and asking why the Centre was hiding deaths. Questioning the vaccine pricing policy, it flagged the deepening oxygen crisis. “We lost 756 doctors in the first wave and 146 in the second. Hundreds of deaths are being shown as non-Covid. Why are we trying to hide the actual deaths?” the IMA asked. — TNS
