The government is urgently going to recruit more nurses to better equip the health department with more manpower to fight COVID-19, Sunday News reports.

This was revealed during a post-Cabinet briefing when Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister, Monica Mutsvangwa said:

More nurses will be urgently recruited from the available pool of qualified nurses, while processes to resolve those on industrial action continue. In addition, to strengthen the Covid-19 response, Government will recruit additional staff to run Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests, including unemployed graduates.

Government will also expedite the secondment and recruitment of additional staff such as nurses, laboratory scientists so as to strengthen health delivery system and national response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Ironically, health workers including nurses are on strike citing poor working conditions and low wages a move that has worsened the COVID-19 crisis according to the acting Health Minister.
