What about retirees who have no children nearby, let them on the phone and no one to bring them bread?
There is a big problem with retirees. Rightly they should not go out because of coronavirus and should be at home, but there are some who have no children shopping for them. They don't even have enough money to have a card on the phone to send a permit message, they don't even have the help of municipalities.
What happens to them? Should they stay home and drink tap water?
Here are some stories of different cases in Albania that bring screens.
Report TV brings in a case of a pensioner from Korça who says he is breaking the rule of exit but out of trouble:
But if we do not know where to turn. I'm violating the rule, I need to buy bread.
Out of necessity, where I know how to use the phone I have no money in the phone. The municipality has not helped us with anything. I have children overseas, I'm with my husband both ill, but I'll pay for the water, the lights, I'll eat bread.
ABC News tells the story of a Vlora retiree who lives alone:
I'm 84 years old without a home. I'm drinking sugar water. And I'll go out and get the police to put me in jail for not eating. I sent it to Dritan Leli's secretary and didn't set the water on fire for two days without bread, sugar water I drank last night. I couldn't sleep. Had a hand of pasta to make soup. I don't want to look in the neighborhood right now.
Top Channel showed the case of a woman who can't afford the lights:
I want to pay for the lights this month, but I don't know how. When we had kids in school we didn't turn on the air conditioner, but now that we have them at home, we can't save.
A pensioner from Lezha says he does not know how to get permission online:
It has not received permission that these are more political fairy tales. Can't apply for what ?! Apply to go out shopping? To eat bread? I'm not without a policeman. What to fine me for? Did I kill anyone ?! This is a super lie.
