(Yicai Global) May 13 -- International Nurses Day, which was yesterday, commemorates Florence Nightingale’s contribution to nursing. More than a century ago, the iconic British nurse led dozens of nurses to the front line of the Crimean War, sparing no effort to help the wounded.
Today, when the Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the world, nurses have not hesitated to rush again to the front line in the battle against a new contagion. Let’s pay tribute to these ‘angels in white’!
