Covid-19 massacres selfless nurses in Iran

The spread of Covid-19 among nurses in Iran has become a disaster. Mohammad Sharifi Moghaddam, the General Director of the Nurse’s House, announced in April that at least 130 nurses in Iran have died of the virus so far. He said nurses were being “massacred” in hospitals due to the vaccine delay.

Mohammad Sharifi Moghaddam said that since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in Iran, more than 95,000 nurses have been infected with the virus and 130 nurses have lost their lives.

Although Iran was the epicenter of the outbreak in the Middle East, but it started vaccination later than all other countries in the Middle East.

The shortage of nurses was a serious issue in Iran even before the outbreak of COVID-19. But after the epidemic, the situation has become much worse.

With the spread of the coronavirus in the world and the increasing need for medical staff, some countries began to attract more nurses, and many tried to make up for their shortcomings by trying to attract nurses from Iran.

Nurses in Iran are encountered with many challenges including forced rotating shifts and overtime as well as lack of social support, facilities, funding, and protective facilities.
