Zimbabwe Nurses Association president Enock Dongo has implored the government to urgently train health workers on dealing with Covid-19 as well as ensuring that all state institutions have adequate protective clothing.
Speaking to Star FM News, Dongo said most health workers lack knowledge about Covid-19 as it is a new disease adding that training should be provided as a matter of urgency.
“We are not adequately equipped with protective clothing to protect ourselves as nurses as far as coronavirus is concerned, and that is a major concern. To start with, we do not have information about the coronavirus, we don’t know the procedure ..what to do when confronted by a person with the coronavirus.”
