“If only one doctor is punished for claiming his or her right, we may start an anti-government movement,” Noh Hwan Kyu, President of the Korean Medical Association (KMA) said in an interview with Dailypharm on March 6.

Noh said, “We can justify our reason. We want to block the government’s wrong action for the nation’s medical system, but the government plans to stop our strike with various unjustified means.”

He pointed, “If the government just says to the public that it will carefully consider virtual doctor visits and for-profit hospitals, citizens won’t be concerned. The government doesn’t speak out any reasonable word. It just threatens us.”

Doctors plan to go on strike on March 10. The Ministry of Health and Welfare ordered doctors to be at work, saying that they will be punished if they don’t follow the order.
