I hope the tests of the PM and the ministers come back negative,” Zaev wrote in a Facebook post.
According to the leader of Social Democrats, the virus has shown it is unpredictable, posing a serious threat to our health.
“That is why we are acting fast, but it is of utmost importance that we all observe the measures and recommendations. Let’s stay at home, employ sound hygiene practices, keep the two-meter distance, protect ourselves and by that protect others. All those observing the measures save lives. We will win the battle against this invisible enemy only through joint efforts,” says Zaev.
Mickoski, on the other hand, via video message to the media from his apartment in Skopje that on the 14th day of the last contact with a person infected with the Covid-19 virus he was tested yet again, and that according to the results he was not infected with the coronavirus.

I take this opportunity to thank the medical staff, members of the Ministry of Interior, the ARM and all those who care about the Macedonian citizens and Macedonia for everything you do for us,” said the leader of the conservative party VMRO-DPMNE.
In his video address, Mickoski said that this year, due to the state of emergency, Easter would be celebrated as usual, in his home with his loved ones, primarily to protect others, and called on believers to adhere to the recommendations of the health authorities.
