A doctor is facing a sack after her photo helping a woman to deliver a baby and simultaneously posing on camera went viral.
The scandalous photo shows an unnamed female doctor smiling and making a ‘V’ sign as a woman gives birth on the delivery-room table right next to her.
The photo was shared on social media and soon went viral. It was also widely covered in local media as another abuse of selfies in the medical profession.
The medic, who was working at the Johor Bahru hospital in the state of Johor at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, is now likely to be fired.
The medical ethics panel is currently investigating the case before deciding if the doctor should face the sack or receive a fine.
Anyway, the doctor as well as the photographer will be punished, Dr Seri Subra, Malaysia’s health minister, said.
