There are a total of eight medical personnel in the Gostivar hospital who are infected with COVID 19. After the tests performed in the past few days, after the three cases of infected medical staff, five new ones were discovered. In the general hospital “Dr. Ferid Murad “138 swabs were taken. The information about the newly infected ones arrived last night in response to a question posed to the spokesman of the Government of the Republic of North Macedonia.
Epidemiological protocols have been in place since a nurse and an internal medicine doctor tested positive for COVID-19 last week. On Friday, it was confirmed that another nurse from the infectious disease ward was also diagnosed with coronavirus.
The hospital administration introduced restrictive measures for the admission of patients and limited the entrance to the hospital since the beginning of the pandemic. The hospital was also reorganized, so the staff worked in one-week shifts to prevent, as they said, the spread of the virus among employees and to ensure that there was no delay and closure of the department.
The General Hospital is the largest healthcare facility in the Gostivar region with approximately 500 employees.
