The Doctors and Nurses Who Gave Their Lives: More than 28% of physicians (281,000) and 15% of registered nurses (570,000) in America are foreign-born, according to a National Foundation for American Policy report. The sacrifices of native-born and immigrant health care professionals have been the backbone of the country’s response to Covid-19. “Nearly a third of the nurses who've died of coronavirus in the U.S. are Filipino, even though Filipino nurses make up just 4% of the nursing population nationwide,” according to CNN.
