PDK’s Haxhiu: State of emergency must be declared

Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK) MP Bekim Haxhiu said on Sunday that the government’s latest measures in the fight against COVID-19 are superficial and that a state of emergency must be declared in Kosovo.

“The Kosovo Assembly must meet as soon as possible to adopt the Anti-COVID-19 Law and to declare a state of emergency … The measures announced by Prime Minister Hoti today are superficial; the actions of the Kosovo Government must be in line with the situation. Fatalities are increasing every day, so is the number of infected persons. Protective measures are not being respected; this is why we need to introduce stricter measures to save lives. We need to learn from the mistakes we have made so far to overcome the situation,” Haxhiu wrote in a Facebook post.
