To mark International Nurses Day yesterday, First Lady Anita Herczegh thanked nurses for their work.

Herczegh noted that the World Health Organization declared 2020 the year of nurses and midwives long before the coronavirus pandemic. “Thanks and gratitude are especially due today,” she said.

According to MTI, the First Lady also thanked organizations that have been donating face masks, immunostimulants and disinfectants to hospitals and social institutions.

State Secretary Miklós Soltész, the head of the National Humanitarian Coordination Council, said the latest round of donations will go to church-run hospitals and care homes across the country. The St. Ferenc and Bethesda hospitals, the hospital of Jewish organization Mazsihisz and the institution of the Hospitaller order will be given 3,000 face masks donated by pharma giant Johnson and Johnson, and 5,000 bottles of immune boosters and disinfectants will go to care homes, he said.
