The number of infections has increased in Tirana, Shkodra, Puka, Lushnja, Kruja and Durres, while nine cities are not affected by coronavirus.
A large part of these cases resulted from the failure to respect the rules of social distancing. Deputy Minister of Health Mira Rakacolli said that some of the cases of infection were caused by visits to relatives infected with COVID-19. For this reason the Ministry invites citizens once again to respect the measures of social distancing.
"The Ministry of Health and Social Protection urges citizens to continue to comply with social removal measures. It is important that infection control measures are respected as far as possible within households, avoiding visits to relatives for any reason, to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. If you have signs of disease COVID19 call the emergency number 127. For any questions or information on COVID19 call the toll-free line 0800 40 40 "Said Rakacolli.
