She said “Covid-19 has forced nurses to work under great physical and psychological strain. And in many instances, lack of proper Personal Protective Equipment has added fear to the other strong and existing emotions nurses and midwives are already experiencing”

According to the GRNMA President, most of the nurses and midwives infected were not at the designated treatment centers but those at other units.
