Philippines COVID: Nurses disproportionately succumb to virus

4 monate vor


As the Philippines reports its first two cases of the COVID-19 variant initially identified in India, its health workers are bearing the brunt. Nearly 6,500 nurses have contracted the disease in the Philippines and a third of all medical staff in the US who have died from the virus are Filippino. The Philippines has the second-highest number of infections and casualties in Southeast Asia and its medical staff say poor working conditions are to blame.
