On the frontline of Nigeria's coronavirus fight, health workers brace for inevitable

On the frontline of Nigeria's coronavirus fight, health workers brace for inevitable Devex "In late July, the World Health Organization announced that over 10,000 healthcare workers in Africa had tested positive for COVID-19. This raised concerns about the ability of countries like Nigeria — which only has 0.4 doctors per 1,000 people to begin with — to successfully control a pandemic that has overwhelmed even better-resourced health systems. As the pressure increased on a handful of key health facilities across the country, so too did the risk of infection for the health professionals working there."
