WHO Director, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said that the total number of nurses worldwide is currently 28 million and represents more than half of the world's medical staff.

ICN Chief Executive, Howard Catton, added that this shortage caused nurses on duty to be exhausted by increasing workload. "In Italy, a total of 23 nurses were reported to have died of COVID-19 and according to current statistics, around 100 health workers have died during epidemics worldwide," he added.
