No one will be exempted from responsibility if the investigation finds that, said Health MinisterVenkoFilipcheat this afternoon’s press briefing.
“There were two doctors, four nurses and 26 patients in the Tetovo modular hospital Wednesday night.Twelve patients have been safely evacuated, they are in the Tetovo hospital and are in stable condition. The bodies of 14 patients were handed over to the Institute of Forensic Medicine. The dead are aged 29 to 79,” the health minister said.
“I am not running away from responsibility, but I will wait for the investigation to end, said Filipce, emphasizing that in this period there is a need for management, especially for some of the patients in Tetovo and completion of the autopsy findings.
