Germany donates 6,000 COVID-19 testing kits to Kosovo

Germany’s Ambassador to Kosovo, Christian Heldt, delivered today to the Kosovo Institute for Public Health a donation of 6,000 COVID-19 testing kits from the German Ministry of Health.

At a press point together with Health Minister Armend Zemaj, Ambassador Heldt called on all citizens to respect the necessary safety measures and on the responsible institutions to implement the required policies to prevent a further spread of the virus in Kosovo.

He called on the political spectrum in Kosovo to come together in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. “Politicians need to work together, we saw yesterday how important it is to speak in one voice,” he said.

Heldt also said that the failure of the Kosovo Assembly to adopt international financial agreements ‘damages Kosovo’. “I don’t understand why the Assembly and all parties cannot come together,” he said noting that this needs to be achieved for the good of the people of Kosovo.
