Doctors complain about the increased workload due to the COVID-19 pandemic and demand to raise wages.
Nurses in Israel on Monday, July 20, began a strike to raise wages, according to Israeli media.
It is noted that the medical staff is dissatisfied with the fact that many nurses and nurses in recent months have been redirected to work in infectious departments with people with coronavirus. Also, many of them are now in quarantine, so those who work in their places, as before the pandemic, face a double burden.
During the strike, only coronavirus departments in hospitals are operating normally, and nurses on duty will also be working to provide emergency care to patients.
Meanwhile, as of Monday in Israel, more than 28 thousand people are infected and sick with the coronavirus. During the entire time of the pandemic, 50 thousand infections were confirmed in the country, but more than 21 thousand people have already recovered. More than 400 people died.
Recall that last week, Israel again strengthened the quarantine due to the surge of coronavirus.
It was also reported that due to the pandemic, the Israeli economy showed a significant collapse for the first time in 25 years.
