Minister Filipche: It’s not the right time to reopen kindergartens

Kindergartens won't be reopened any time soon because of the rising surge in new coronavirus cases, says Health Minister Venko Filipche.

Skopje, 29 June 2020 (MIA) – Kindergartens won’t be reopened any time soon because of the rising surge in new coronavirus cases, says Health Minister Venko Filipche.

“It’s hard to say now when they will reopen, but one thing is for sure – they won’t be opened soon,” Filipche states Monday when asked by a reporter after a visit to the Institute for Respiratory Diseases, which will start admitting COVID-19 patients.

According to him, the decision to conduct a targeted screening of kindergarten staff across the country was made when the epidemiological situation was in favor of the reopening of kindergartens.

Since we recorded a resurgence in new cases, Filipche stresses, at this point it’s not the right time to reopen kindergartens, because children are considered at risk of transmitting the virus to their family members.
