Albania has not received the Indian variant of the coronavirus, according to Brataj, but this doesn’t mean that it will not come in the future.
“There are no suspicions about the Indian variant in Albania. There are more than 1000 mutations. The dominating one are the ones we already went through. This variant is prevalent on the others, to the point of not allowing the flu this season. We don’t have any case, but it is present in 44 states. In January we had the British variant”, Brataj declared.

Greece had 38 deaths today, it’s senseless that they are closing the border
As regards the movement in EU countries, Brataj declared that these are affected mostly by geopolitical factors, such as the case of Greece.
“It makes no sense. Greece has 38 victims in 24 hours and they don’t allow Albanians to enter their country. It is affected by politics. However, summer will be easier for Albanians”, Brataj declared.
