A Shout-Out For Nurses

Just as they did during the "Spanish Flu" pandemic of 1918-1920 - coincidentally, the period when the Underwood three-bank portable typewriter was being developed - it is nurses who have borne the brunt of battling Covid-19 . As one news outlet put it, “Across the world, nurses are burnt out. In the two years of the pandemic, they've been on the front lines of every aspect of the Covid-19 response: testing, tracing, screening, isolating, vaccinating and treating the disease. That doesn't take into account the existing non-Covid-related work, a backlog of which continues to build up. With no respite and ever-increasing demand, nurses across the world — and across both public and private systems — say they're feeling stretched to the limit.”
