New restrictions at border crossings are one of the options considered by Macedonian authorities after the increase in the number of newly infected with COVID-19 in the neighboring countries.
On Monday after a long period, Macedonia registered a two-digit instead of a three-digit number of positive cases with fewer deaths than in previous days, i.e. with 2.5 deaths per million inhabitants.
Macedonia has the highest number of deaths per million inhabitants among all the countries on the Old Continent. Behind it are Bosnia and Herzegovina, which registered 2.4 deaths per million inhabitants yesterday, while Moldova, which has 1.75 deaths per million inhabitants, is in third place.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the country has registered 346 deceased patients as a result of complications due to COVID-19 or 166 victims per million inhabitants, which are the 13th worst statistic in Europe and by far the worst in the region when analyzing the number of deceased patients per million inhabitants.
