Over 41,000 health workers infected with COVID-19, says WHO

 At least 41,000 health workers across Africa have been infected with the dreaded COVID-19 disease, said the World Health Organization (WHO).

It further stated that there is an urgent need to make healthcare safer by pursuing patient-centered policies, redesigning processes, ramping-up hygiene practices, and transforming organisational cultures because the lack thereof has led to the death of 2.6 million patients globally.

The WHO Regional Director for Africa, Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, made this known in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, to commemorate the World Patient Safety Day.
