the number of people affected by COVID-19 in Albania has been growing throughout the week. In the past 24 hours 69 people have been confirmed coronavirus positive, and new records are recorded day after day.
The National Institute of Health declares that the increase in the number of people affected derives from the lowering of the guard and the failure to implement the established rules, underlining that many cases have occurred in companies, due to the failure to comply with the safety protocols.
Despite the high number of infections, the highest since the pandemic, the Institute has made it known that the situation is not worrying and was expected since the exposure time of citizens is greater than the days when the country was closed in quarantine.
"It should be emphasized that this period cannot be compared to the peak period while we were closed in quarantine, because now the exposure is longer and there is a greater number of contacts during the day's routine activities, where currently 97% of businesses are in business.
As in recent days positive cases are emerging in some companies and commercial entities, we once again invite companies to correctly implement workplace safety protocols: disinfect the premises, perform regular ventilation, use protective masks or other PPE during service for citizens, as defined by the protocols of the health authorities.
Any violation will be considered dangerous for the health of citizens and as such will be punished according to the laws in force "say by the Institute.
With the increase in infections in the last 24 hours, there have been a greater number of hospitalized people and people in serious conditions. At the hospital for infectious diseases there are currently 50 patients, 7 of them are in intensive care and one is intubated. The average age of the inpatients is 60 years, of whom over 60% come from Tirana. The 69 cases of the day were confirmed after 319 tests performed.
Of the new cases, 28 occurred in Tirana, 16 in Shkoder, 8 in Kruja, 6 in Vlora, 5 in Durres, 2 in Elbasan and 1 case in Kamza, Mallakastra, Puka and Lushnja. Today 11 citizens have been healed, including 2 members of the healthcare staff.
