70% of new COVID-19 cases infected with British strain


Virus analysis shows that 70% of the new COVID-19 patients are infected with the so-called British virus variant. Over the weekend, we’ll look into the situation in certain cities, including Kavadarci, Prilep and Ohrid and based on research data, we’ll determine whether there’s need to propose additional restrictions, said Health Minister Venko Filipche.

The number of new cases, he added, is increasing very easily, with the R0 virus transmission factor rising to 1.3.

However, Filipche stressed, we can’t know for sure whether this trend will prevail or if it’s just a small, temporary wave.
