ID-IRI Survey analyzing the deaths of HCWs is accepted for publication

ID-IRI Survey analyzing the deaths of Health Care Workers (HCWs) in 37 countries is accepted for publication in International Journal of Infectious Diseases. 

In the paper, we made a call to WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to post national data on their website.

I would like to thank Prof. Daniel Lucey from Georgetown University and as the IDSA counterpart for his great contributions to the study. Moreover, I would like to thank our collaborators in the participating countries for providing their national data.

Thanks to our group.

Best wishes
