Brenda Mawere, a nurse at Parirenyatwa’s Red Zone Unit, says COVID-19 brought a lot of uncertainties and that it was not easy dealing with patients in the first days.

Speaking to The FeedZW, nurse Mawere said most of the patients presented with the severe state of COVID-19 and seeing them recover brought excitement.

“Considering that COVID-19 is a new disease on its own, there were so many uncertainties. Most of them would present with difficulties in breathing and that severe state of COVID-19.

“Seeing the patient recovering say maybe after three or four days, seeing some changes it was really exciting to see that at least I have done something. I am doing something, at least there is someone who is recovering.

“So it was quiet exciting that at least there was someone who is improving,” she said.

According to Mawere, as nurses they are bound by the pledge they made which compels them to not select the type of patients they nurse.

“We did the nurse pledge. We agreed that you nurse any type of patient, any patient anywhere and that is our motto as nurses.

“So when we encounter such a disease like this, I dont see any reason for the nurses to panic. Or even to refuse to nurse a patient because a disease is deadly.

“Of course panicking a bit is good, because it will prepare you to be in a certain mood. I would encourage other nurses to say whenever there is a pandemic we are here for the patients.

“We have graduated to be a nurse, and to be a caregiver. So if we dont agree to nurse a patient because there is a certain type of disease who will nurse them?

Meanwhile, although Zimbabwe is in a 30-day lockdown, the number of COVID-19 cases is increasing by each day. #OpenCovidContracts
