An increased number of Army members will be deployed to several cities throughout the country, to assist police officers and local government units when necessary, Defense Minsiter Radmila Sekerinska underlined at a press conference Thursday.
“Additional Army units will be deployed to Skopje, Tetovo, Gostivar, Debar, Struga, Ohrid, Strumica, Kumanovo, Bitola, Prilep, etc, to help municipal authorities and police forces properly implement protective measures,” Shekerinska said.
Military power, Sekerinska pointed out, is used to protect lives.
Regarding the situation in Kumanovo, the Minister said that putting the entire city under quarantine will just be throwing money at the problem.
Army units, she stressed, participate in the fight against the coronavirus in several ways.
