Debar, 20 July 2020 (MIA) – The Debar Municipal Operations HQ at a meeting Monday said the epidemiological situation in the town involving COVID-19 infections is very critical.
It comes as a result of the town’s residents not complying with the anti-coronavirus protective measures as well as the businesses breaking work protocols.
“A request has been made for a pulmonologist and a sanitary health inspector to be sent to the General Hospital in Debar. The Ministry of Health is also preparing a project for the construction of a COVID-19 center in our municipality, too,” the Debar HQ said.
Also, the regional Red Cross together with the Debar Hospital and local authorities will prepare materials to raise public awareness in the town about the importance of adhering to the health safety guidelines.
So far, 173 COVID-19 cases have been registered in Debar, including 122 cases that were reported after the town in the western part of the country was coronavirus-free for 50 days. Five people died since the outbreak of the epidemic.
