Ninety-four Italian doctors have died of coronavirus, according to the Italian Doctors Association.
Meanwhile, the Italian Federation of Nurses said that twenty-six nurses have died of the virus and 6,549 nurses have contracted the virus.
According to the Italian health agency, the total number of health workers infected with the coronavirus as of Monday was 12,681.
A lack of proper protective gear has made contagion inside healthcare facilities a contributor to the rampant spread of the virus. Some of the best health structures in Europe are in northern Italy, but they were pushed to near collapse with the sheer number of Covid-19 patients in need of urgent care.
