The Minister of Health and Social Protection, Ogerta Manastirliu has declared from the Regional Hospital of Elbasan the closure of Covid wards in the regional hospitals.
“The closure of wards in regional hospitals restores these hospitals to a normal situation and we are talking here about the Regional Hospital of Elbasan, which today no longer has inpatients. The cases that will be triaged in the hospital of Elbasan will be referred to the hospital Covid1, in Tirana. Just as the infectious disease ward at the Durrës Regional Hospital and the one at the Shkodra Regional Hospital are in the process of being closed. These were the three hospitals or three wards in the three regional hospitals that responded to the second scenario “, declared Manastirliu.
The Minister of Health also said that the possibility of treating patients in a Covid hospital is being assessed, given the low hospitalization figures.
“Today we are in a very controlled epidemiological situation, where the fact that we are closing the wards in regional hospitals and we are also evaluating the possibility to focus the cases of patients in a single hospital, given that we have few numbers, shows that we are at the moment to review the current measures that are currently decided “, said Manastirliu.
Minister Manastirliu said that these two days the relief of the current measures will be evaluated.
“The Technical Committee of Experts is dynamically assessing the situation. We believe that within the next two days we will have a meeting of the Technical Committee of Experts, who are reviewing the measures. A revaluation in the context of relief is being considered, but it will always be a controlled, gradual reopening. So we will move with a gradualness also in terms of facilitating the measures that we currently have defined “, said Manastirliu.
The Minister of Health and Social Protection, Ogerta Manastirliu, the Chairman of the Socialist Parliamentary Group Taulant Balla and the Mayor of Elbasan Gledian Llatja have praised the work of the medical staff in dealing with covid19.
