The number of people infected with coronavirus in Albania is increasing. The Ministry of Health announced today that 114 people were swabs, 10 of which tested positive. In addition to the relatives of the first two cases and two other new cases of infection have been identified.
Deputy Minister: in case of diffusion, we will convert the hospital known as "sanatorium" to a quarantine place.
Deputy Minister of Health Mira Rakacolli said that Albania is preparing to face the situation by thinking of the worst-case scenario such as that in neighboring Italy affected by COVID-19. Rakacolli said that if we get to the point where the Hospital for infectious diseases will be full of patients, we plan to adapt the "Shefqet Ndroqi" hospital known as "Sanatorium" to new needs.
However, the deputy minister said that currently only 3 are hospitalized in the infectious disease department and are expected to leave the hospital soon.
“We only have 3 coronavirus patients in the entire infectious disease department. Thinking about the worst scenario as in Italy, there is an exchange between those who leave and those who enter and in any case we have the "Shefqet Ndroqi" hospital in reserve, where we have taken all measures. Even if we were to face this situation, the attention to patients will not drop. We have separate rooms for those who have COVID-19 ″, Deputy Minister Rakacolli said.
