"About 10 health workers have died from the novel coronavirus in Azerbaijan, so far," the head of the working group on infectious diseases of TABIB Vasif Aliyev told APA.
According to him, medical workers have the most contact with sick people: “Doctors, nurses and officials have the most contact with sick people. These people are at high risk and there is a lot of infection among them. Most infections were reported among midwives and nurses. But it is difficult to say the number. Because health workers can treat themselves at home. Infected and elderly health care workers have a more severe disease and a higher risk of death. So far, about 10 medical workers have died from the coronavirus.
