Letter sent by Global Nurses United to the World Health Organization

Friday 20th November, 2020

The ANMF has joined with other nurse and health care worker unions around the world in signing a letter sent by Global Nurses United to the World Health Organization, urgently demanding that WHO immediately strengthen its Covid-19 guidance to protect nurses and other health care workers, and the public.

More than eight months into the Covid-19 pandemic, nurses and other health care workers are still being exposed, infected, and dying. In September, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 14% of Covid-19 cases worldwide are health care workers, and in some countries, it is as high as 35%. Thousands of health care workers have died from Covid-19 around the world.
