The modular hospital in Tetovo was built according to international and domestic standards, and the fire protection plan was to be developed and implemented by the hospital staff under the direction of the head of the hospital in Tetovo, the World Bank told Deutsche Welle.
The tender for construction of the Tetovo, as well as the other 16 modular hospitals across the country in October 2020 was conducted in accordance with domestic regulations and World Bank rules, from where the Macedonian Government took a loan of 3.8 million euros.
