To date, neither Peru's president Francisco Sagasti nor local authorities have attended to their demands.
"This week, we will radicalize the struggle," Peru's Medical Federation President Rodolfo Larota warned and assured that the doctors have not stopped treating the COVID-19 patients despite being on strike.
Workers are calling for a national protest to pressure Sagasti to protect those most at risk, "especially when we are facing the second wave of the pandemic," he recalled.
