In the past 24 hours, another 24 patients have been added to the healed list, bringing the total number of those healed from COVID-19 to 455.
Of the 281 active patients with COVID19 in our country, only 10% are being treated at the two COVID hospitals, while about 90% of them are in quarantine with mild or asymptomatic symptoms and are systematically monitored by family doctors.
So far, 30 citizens have lost the battle against the disease despite the efforts of medical personnel. The National Institute of Health has announced that 33 patients are currently receiving treatment at the two COVID hospitals. 27 of these patients are in the infectious disease hospital, of which 6 are in intensive care. In the COVID 2 "Shefqet Ndroqi" hospital, there are 6 hospitalized patients, 2 of whom are in intensive care in serious conditions.
Despite daily data fluctuations, the situation continues to be under control. The stable number of hospitalizations and the low number of ICU patients requiring assisted breathing serve as indicators.
In order for this situation to continue to be controlled also in connection with the relaxation of some measures, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection invites all citizens to continue to respect the established measures, to respect physical distance and take care of personal hygiene.
These measures should also be respected to the maximum within families, avoiding visits to relatives for any reason. If you have signs of illness call the emergency number 127. For any questions or information on COVID19 call the toll free number 0800 40 40.
