Patna: Nearly a dozen patients have died during a strike by Bihar’s doctors, which was called-off on Friday after an assurance by the state government to fulfil their demands, officials said.

Junior doctors from the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH), Nalanda Medical College and Hospital (NMCH) and Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) ended their strike after Bihar’s Chief Secretary Deepak Kumar assured them late Thursday that their demands would be met.

“All the striking doctors have returned to work after the government’s assurance,” Health Secretary Sanjay Kumar said.
