KATHMANDU, July 13: Dr Govinda KC’s health condition has worsened since yesterday night, according to doctors. KC is on a fast-unto-death in Jumla district for the past fourteen days.
According to Dr. Jiban Chhetri, one of those overseeing Dr. KC’s treatment, the latter is semi-conscious because of dropping in oxygen and glucose levels. “Moreover, there’s less blood circulation in his brain.”
KC is currently on his 15th hunger strike at the Karnali Academy of Health Sciences in Jumla demanding reforms in the medical education sector.
“KC needs to be admitted in an ICU. However, here, we don’t have one,” he added. Expressing support with KC, Tribhuwan University Teaching Hospital has halted all services except emergency.
