Abstract

Nurses have been frontline health workers being continuously exposed to infected patients for their care and treatment. The immediate response, workload, physical and psychological stress and Covid-19 infection have raised major health issues among nurses. The role of nurses is not limited within the patient care but extends further in professional teams and communities. Maintenance of effective communication to mollify the risk of global pandemic by playing a central role for managing, controlling the infectious disease remains crucial. There seems a great need for Government, policy makers, nursing groups and health care organizations to advocate the nurses both during and following a worldwide outbreak.
