The same newspaper reports an interview with one of the departing nurses.
Today they brought us together to offer another help to the Italian state. We are around 60 nurses, not all of us employed. I worked as an alternate at the hospital pending our turn to leave to help Italy.
They warned us two weeks ago. We know it will be possible to contract the virus but we will do our best as a staff, and I believe we will go out with our heads held high. I am a mother with three children and they didn't take it well.
We did not take training courses, but we already have experience we were told that we would train there and then we will start working. We come from all over Albania. We will go down to Rome, but the hospital where we will go will be chosen after the landing.
The message we have been given is to keep our distance, respect the rules of hygiene and go backwards with our heads held high, "said the nurse.
