The corona pandemic has been raging for almost a year, and employees in clinics and nursing homes have been doing enormous things for almost a year - especially in countries like Great Britain, where the virus has spread particularly strongly.
Duchess Kate has now praised the British nursing staff for their work in the corona pandemic.
"You keep hearing about the amazing things that nurses do all over the country that go one step further," said the wife of Prince William during a video conversation with carers in Coventry, the palace announced on Thursday evening.
“And there are things that are not part of the training or that are taught to you, but things that come from the heart.” That is what counts, says the 39-year-old: “This kindness for the patients you care for and whose relatives cannot be there. "
Kate also underlined the role of caregivers in the mass vaccinations in the conversation.
The Duchess is the patron of a campaign that works to improve the image of nursing staff.
In Coventry, Margaret Keenan, then 90, became the first British woman to receive a vaccination against the coronavirus in December.
