Authorities can Deal with COVID-19 Wave, Says Health Minister Filipce

According to Health Minister Venko Filipce, most of the new coronavirus cases have a light clinical picture. He is adamant that the authorities can deal with the wave. As the Minister explained at a press-conference on Monday, the introduction of additional restrictive measures will depend on the developments in the next days. The issue of relaxation of part of the measures, such as opening borders or kindergartens, will be discussed at the end of the week. The Infectious Diseases Committee is thinking about quarantine for certain municipalities in Skopje and parts of Stip where the number of cases has been constantly on the rise, as well as about reintroducing the curfew in certain municipalities. That matter, too, will be discussed at the end of the week.
