The number of coronavirus cases in Albania has risen, but currently, there are no confirmed cases of the new coronavirus variant.
The health minister, Ogerta Manastirliu has urged the public to observe the measures in place, adding that the month of February will see the arrival of the other coronavirus vaccine which will be obtained through the COVAX mechanism.
“We have started the vaccination of more than 500 doctors and nurses working in the Covid hospitals and this process will continue, because we’ve managed to secure the supply of Pfizer vaccines through the COVAX mechanism. We have made an upfront payment of four million dollars and the first batches are expected to arrive in the month of February,” the minister said.
Meanwhile, Manastirliu added that the vaccine is a powerful weapon in defeating the virus, but at the same time, she called on the public to remain alert so that the situation remains in control. TemA
