The world is lacking nearly 6 million nurses, an important force in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a WHO newspaper.

The World Health Organization (WHO) on April 7 warned that the world lacks nearly six million nurses, according to AFP.

The UN health agency and its partners such as the Nursing Now campaign and the World Nursing Council (ICN) emphasized this in a report.

“Nurses are the cornerstone of any health system,” declared WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

“Today, many nurses are on the front lines of the battle against Covid-19,” noted Tedros. He also added that it is important that they “get the support they need to keep the world healthy”.
