Health Minister comments on spike in COVID-19 cases

Kosovo’s Minister of Health, Armend Zemaj, said in an interview with RTV Dukagjini on Monday that the spike in COVID-19 cases is not unexpected because the citizens failed to respect the protective measures.

“The failure to keep the distance and the failure to wear masks have brought us to this point where we have a spike in cases,” he said.

Zemaj said the government was forced to undertake new measures as part of efforts to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus.

Zemaj also called on political opponents not to use the pandemic for political gains.
