The new Chief of Infectious will be elected after April 25! Dr. Pipero and Harxhi among the rumored names
Najada Çomo will no longer be the head of Infectious Diseases, due to her involvement in politics alongside the SP. For two and a half years, she ran the Infectious Diseases Hospital, and will continue to be in charge until the April 25 elections, where she is expected to be voted as a SP candidate.
Dr. Arben Gjata, Coordinator of the Task Force for COVID-19 and Rector of the Medical University shows the procedure what happens in these cases:
"There is a decision of the Council of Ministers that is implemented in these cases as the mandate of the service chiefs is 5 years. Najada and generally the heads of service at QSUT have 2 and a half years that have been selected, so in these cases the command process is done. The directorate of QSUT proposes to the rectory one of the names they think to elect the head of the service, the rectory gives the theoretical consent and then these names go for confirmation to the Minister of Health and the Minister of Education "
But what conditions must the commanding officer meet? First coping in the coronavirus pandemic situation. Doctor Long explains to Report:
"The criterion is mainly related to the scientific title or scientific degree, so he must be at least a doctor of science. Must have a minimum of about 15 years of work experience and must have at least 5 years of pedagogical experience. The infectious disease is full of doctors who have shown it all this time because it has been a year since COVIDI started and there are many doctors who have worked with a lot of self-sacrifice, with a lot of dedication. I believe it will be difficult for the QSUT directorate to choose the one that, in addition to the commitment and professional side, also has organizational skills ”.
So far two names are rumored to take over the Infectious Diseases Service. They are well-known infectious disease doctors, Arjan Harxhi and Pëllumb Pipero.
