Law on the Protection against Communicable Diseases to be amended in a fact-tracked procedure


The Law on the Protection of the Population against Communicable Diseases is already in Parliament procedure and is expected to be amended next week, Health Minister Venko Filipche said Saturday.

He said he expected the law to be adopted soon in a fact-tracked procedure paving the way for the new restrictive measures, recommended recently by the Commission for Infectious Diseases, to be introduced in a bid to stop the spread of the new coronavirus.

“It emerged that we have to amend the law because some of the decrees on mandatory use of masks outdoors are included in the decree with the force of law, enacted by the end of the state of emergency,” Filipche told reporters in Shtip, noting it was the best way for enacting an efficient measure.
