The statement from the Ministry of Health
We inform you about the recent situation of COVID-19 in Albania.
This morning, a 66-year-old patient died at the Hospital for Infectious Diseases. The victim suffered from several concomitant diseases: heart failure, pulmonary edema and kidney failure. For several days the patient was intubated (with assisted breathing) in serious health conditions.
Yesterday, following the medical treatment of COVID-19 confirmed patients in the infectious hospital, we performed a new test on "patient zero", which was negative. We will perform a second test to confirm this patient's recovery from COVID-19.
I would like to inform you that in the last 24 hours 60 suspects have been tested, of which 4 new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed.
Three of them have had contact with confirmed cases but are healthy but the other is a new one. It is a 66-year-old patient who is currently in intensive care at the infectious hospital. To date, 665 cases have been tested, 19 tested positive with COVID-59.
Number of people infected with coronavirus to date
- Tirana 42 cases
- Durres 5 cases (a victim)
- Lushnje 2 cases (a victim)
- Elbasan 2 cases
- Fier 6 cases
- Rrogozhina 2 cases
Currently 30 patients are hospitalized in the infectious hospital (from Tirana, Durres, Fier, Elbasan and Rrogozhina). Three of these patients are in intensive care. While the rest of the patients are in stable conditions so far. We are continuing to test suspicious cases to be able to break the transmission chain of infection.
Once again an appeal to citizens: do not go to the hospital immediately!
Call 127 when you have symptoms!
Regardless of the measures taken by us, isolation and personal hygiene is important, to reduce the spread of the infection as much as possible. The best way to help healthcare professionals cope with this is to stay home (Albanian video)
