Portugal’s nurses yesterday started a five-day strike which they have termed a wake-up call.

The nurses' strike lasts until Friday and is a protest against the health professionals’ weariness and demotivation. The Nurses’ Union that called the action, Sindepor, said the many nurses will still work despite the action because of the pandemic. Sindepor president Carlos Ramalho told Lusa News Agency the country’s nurses "have made many sacrifices over the years".
