The former Health Minister, Tritan Shehu, today’s guest on A2 Ditari, appealed the government to take urgent measures in order to avoid a difficult winter like the last one.

According to him, the Chinese vaccine that was widely used in Albania is not safe, uncertified by EMA and the FDA, and which has an efficiency of 50%. For this reason, the former Minister says that autumn and winter could still be very dangerous.
