The first death was recorded on July 13 and since then, it has claimed lives of as many as 13 doctors, most of whom were admitted to the AIIMS-Patna.

IMA officials blames “negligent” approach of the government and substandard supply of PPE kits behind the doctors falling victims to the Covid-19.

“We requested the government several times to spare the doctors above 60 from handling the Covid-19 cases but the government has not paid any heed to our demand so far,” state IAM secretary Dr Sunil Kumar told the media on Saturday.
