Zemaj warns on new measures to prevent coronavirus spread

The Minister of Health, Armend Zemaj has warned that they will soon come up with decisions for new measures for Kosovo and in particular for Prishtina, to prevent further spread of the coronavirus.

“The last two weeks, Prishtina has been the epicenter of the infection in our country. This disturbing fact forces us to very quickly come up with decisions for new measures for Kosovo in general, but for Pristina in particular.

Over 700 new cases of infection during the last 14 days, in the capital, a situation that requires maximum mobilization of all to implement accurately and rigorously the decisions of the government.

I asked the mayor of Prishtina, Mr. Shpend Ahmeti, to join forces with the emergency headquarters and the task force, and increase attention in schools, public transport, gastronomy, and wherever the danger of the COVID-19 virus appears.

I demanded that the recommendations such as keeping physical distance, using masks, disinfecting, and ventilating the premises be strictly implemented, to prevent the eventual spread of the infection indoors.

Prishtina is the capital of all citizens of the Republic of Kosovo, but in no case can we allow it to be a nest of infection”.
