Earlier, the government congratulated nurses for their selflessness and dedication to their profession.

Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah conveying the governmen’s message to the frontline health workers said, “The commemoration of the day comes at a time when the role of the nurse needs no further highlighting.

As you are aware, we are in the mix of a pandemic and the nurse is an instrumental figure in this fight.

From contact tracing, triaging hospitals to care for the sick and follow up on those who have even recovered, the Ghanaian nurse has been a strong soldier in this battle.” He said
