The Ministry of Health, Ogerta Manastirliu, has warned that if the number of infected continues to increase, isolation measures will be tightened.
"The increase in these figures of new cases is the maximum allowed by our opening scenarios. Further increase would force us to take immediate steps to prevent a second shock wave, which would blow up what has been achieved so far. If we continue with the deteriorating trend of recent days, we will be forced to take steps backwards. "The next few days will be crucial for the reopening plan."
