This year's World Health Day is dedicated to honouring the tireless work of nurses and midwives across the globe, media reported on Tuesday.


It's celebrated every April 7 to spread the awareness around maintaining good health and a balanced lifestyle, and this year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) called on people to extend their gratitude and support of nurses and midwives across the world.

The UN Security Council says it will hold its first meeting on the coronavirus pandemic by videoconference on Thursday after weeks of divisions among its five permanent members, diplomats say. Guterres will preside the virtual meeting behind closed doors.

 During the coronavirus pandemic, millions of nurses help those infected or suspected of being infected with the coronavirus, WHO said.

The global health organisation added that, along with its partners, would make a series of recommendations to strengthen the nursing and midwifery workforce worldwide.

United Nations secretary-general António Guterres tweeted that this year's celebration came at a "very difficult time."
