Health Minister Bekim Sali in an interview with TV Sitel stressed that the situation with the pandemic is analyzed every week and “the peak of Omicron is in a slight decline”.
“On a weekly basis, we analyze the weekly epidemiological situation and based on it, we make decisions and steps that we will take. At the moment the Omicron peak is declining slightly and we are now entering the hospitalization phase,” Sali said.
The health minister says that the biggest problem in dealing with the coronavirus is the great resistance to vaccination, and he says that he has seen “hard work” of health workers in several COVID centers throughout the country that he has visited so far.
“Our society is opposing vaccination and that is a big problem. We do not have a final solution for that. We will continue urge and provide vaccines. There is maximum effort. It is unfortunate that the number of vaccinated is low. We see patients who are victims of propaganda, for which it is inexplicable why it is done. Conspiracy theories, incompetence, etc. We try to develop our positive policies,” Sali added.
