Meta President: Best wishes for a speedy recovery
The President of the Republic, Ilir Meta, has called for a speedy recovery from COVID to Mayor Erion Veliaj, who announced today that he was hit by Covid-19.
"By wishing a speedy recovery to the Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj and a lot of health for his family, I want to strongly reconfirm the vital importance of respecting health protocols, as well as increasing the effectiveness of protective measures through awareness, transparency and completeness, to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The alarming rate of growing cases of affected citizens, unfortunately also the number of victims, requires a more efficient and transparent strategy to deal with the serious consequences of this dangerous pandemic. I ask all citizens to follow the instructions made public to wear masks and respect physical distances, especially when the peak of the tourist season is approaching.
It is also extremely necessary to guarantee protection measures for doctors, nurses and support staff, who are at the forefront, sacrificing, even with their own lives, to protect the health of every citizen ".
