Albin Kurti positive with COVID-19

The leader of Kosovo’s biggest opposition party – the Vetevendosje, Albin Kurti, has tested positive for COVID-19.

Kurti confirmed the news in a Facebook post.

“The day before yesterday I had some symptoms: headache, a cough, pain, and redness in the eyes. Yesterday I took the COVID-19 test, which came out positive. In the next two weeks I will stay in self-isolation,” Kurti said.

Kosovo has seen a surge of COVID-19 cases over the last few days with around 200 cases testing positive on daily basis. Authorities have warned of reintroducing COVID-19 restriction measures to prevent further spread of coronavirus.
