On International Nurses Day, Global Nurses United released the names of more than 300 overseas nurses known to have died after treating and caring for COVID-19 patients.
Nurses, midwives and carers, health services and their executives and politicians across Australia and New Zealand participated in a vigil on 12 May to honour those nurses who have lost their lives.
The vigil, shared on ANMF’s and the New Zealand Nurses Organisation’s social media pages, was one of many held across the world.
The vigil features a beautiful performance by Vika and Linda Bull and has been viewed more than 125,000 times.
You can view the vigil on Facebook.
