11.18 MORE THAN 7,000 HEALTH WORKERS HAVE DIED FROM CORONAVIRUS WORLDWIDE, ABOUT 63 IN SPAIN
Amnesty International (AI) has made a report in which it warns that more than 7,000 health professionals have died from coronavirus in the world, of which about 63 were working in Spain.
The country with the highest number of health workers who died from this cause is Mexico (1,320), followed by the United States (1,077) and Brazil (634), where infection and death rates have been high throughout the pandemic. In addition, the organization has drawn attention to the alarming figures registered in South Africa (240) and India (573), where infection rates have “skyrocketed” in recent months.
“The death of more than 7,000 people while trying to save other people is a crisis of enormous proportions. Every health professional has the right to safe working conditions and it is a scandal that so many are sacrificing their lives,” said the Director of Economic and Social Justice at Amnesty International, Steve Cockburn.
In a July 13 report, Amnesty International warned that more than 3,000 health professionals had died after contracting the coronavirus, although the current figures are due to the increase in the rate of COVID in several countries, as well as the availability of new data sources. However, the organization has pointed out that the figures for each country are not always directly comparable due to the use of different methods to collect data and the definition of health personnel used in each country.
