High mortality rate among medical staff
High mortality rate among nurses taking care of coronavirus patients, Mohammad Sharifi Moghaddam, Secretary-General of the Nurses Home in Iran stated: “The coronavirus’s high mortality rate of nurses reflects the inadequacy of the country’s health authorities, especially the Nursing Assistant of the Ministry of Health and the nursing system. Necessary measures are not provided to maintain the health of nurses. From the shortage of masks, gloves, scrubs and other equipment to the shortage of nursing staff that has forced nurses to care for more coronavirus patients in hospitals.”
Doctors and medical staff from all over the world are leading this battle against Coronavirus from the front. They truly are the real heroes selflessly doing their duty, putting their own lives at risk and saving the world. The best we can do is appreciate their efforts and support them by co-operating and staying at home. They are putting their families, their food, their sleep everything on low priorities to save people they don’t even know.
