Hospital operating rooms will be disabled Sunday as the doctors' strike enters its third week. Only emergency surgeries will be performed.

Nurses, in their own protest, will remove two beds from operation in each hospital department.

Sunday afternoon, representatives from the Finance and Health Ministries will meet with physicians representing the doctors' strike for another meeting. Following the meeting, the sides will report negotiation results to the state Labor Court.
