An image of Florence Nightingale is projected on the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, London, on International Nurses Day and to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of the nurse, Tuesday, May 12, 2020. Historians have praised Florence Nightingale on the 200th anniversary of her birth, and said her legacy has "never been more relevant" amid the coronavirus pandemic. Staff at the Florence Nightingale Museum in Westminster said her key nursing values – which focused on maintaining good hygiene, regularly washing hands and carrying out evidence-based practices – have been widely echoed over the past months.
