Doctor demonstration

 
Doctors on strike demonstrate in Yeouido, western Seoul, on Friday to protest the government's plan to turn out more medical students and mandating that a majority of them practice in areas outside Seoul. According to the Health Ministry, 25 percent of hospitals and clinics notified the ministry the day before that they will be participating in the strike. Doctors in emergency rooms and intensive care units reportedly did not join the strike to ensure that patients were guaranteed emergency medical care. [NEWS1]
