Tensions flared at the Kuliyapitiya Base Hospital on Monday when steps were taken to transfer eighteen pregnant mothers from the hospital owing to the nurses strike.

An argument had broken out between nurses and midwives at the Kuliyapitiya Base Hospital on Monday morning, when the midwives reported for labour room duties. Our reporter says that hospital authorities later took steps to transfer 18 pregnant mothers from the hospital.

While the mothers who left the hospital in the afternoon protested against this step, they also voiced their protest to hospital authorities who arrived there. Nursing staff who arrived at the hospital subsequently, informed the mothers that they are prepared to provide services.

Our cameras captured footage of how the mothers forcefully made their way back into the hospital.
