The number of new COVID cases in this period is higher than the official figures. The infected persons neglect the symptoms by considering them as a cold and do not demand a test for COVID.
The Head of the National Emergency, Skender Brataj, declared that the persons confirmed positive with the coronavirus have the typical symptoms of the “Delta” variant”. Fortunately, there have been no severe cases.
“Brataj expects a higher infection rate in this period, since the Indian mutation, which may have reached Albania, is spreading quite rapidly.
The Expert of the Technical Committee says that they haven’t determined the scenario that will be applied for the new academic year. Brataj explains that they will decide before September 13, based on the situation at that time.
Health experts appeal to citizens to receive both doses of the vaccine in order to avoid complications from the Delta variant.
