Zimbabwe: No Nurses to Care for the Sick As COVID-19 Cases Surge

[RFI] Imagine you re in a country standing on the brink of coronavirus. More than 1,000 confirmed cases. Twenty deaths. You know the full force of the pandemic is coming -- because it s already hit the country next door. Your hospitals are marginally better prepared than they were in March. But only marginally: still less than 100 ventilators for a country of 16 million people. And there s a bigger problem. If you are hospitalised, you ll find few nurses to care for you.
