Ministry of Health: Tirana, the hotspot of the Covid-19 epidemic in the country

In the announcement from the Ministry of Health regarding the coronavirus situation in the country, Tirana, unlike other announcements, is considered as the hottest outbreak of the pandemic in Albania.

Today was marked a new record of infected, with 302 cases, where Tirana leads with 173 affected in the last 24 hours. Tirana due to the higher number of inhabitants and the center of the main businesses in Albania remains the most dangerous source of infection. 

The head of the Emergency, Skënder Brataj, stated last night that if the numbers are going to increase, it is expected that there will be tougher measures, but there is no talk of closure at the national level. There may be isolation of areas, the most problematic ones and it is not known if a decision can be made to isolate Tirana until the curve is reduced.

Currently, Tirana has 3653 active infected. Durrës ranks after Tirana with 724 active cases, while Dibra and Gjirokastra counties remain the two counties with the least active cases, out of 95 respectively.
