Filipce: We won the 1st round against the coronavirus


Returning to normal life will be a gradual process. During this transition, we’ll all have to abide by three rules: wash our hands regularly, practice social distancing, and wear protective face gear (masks, scarves, etc.), Health Minister Venko Filipce posted on his Facebook profile on Wednesday.

We won the first round in the fight against the coronavirus, the Minister wrote, but we have to be conscientious and responsible in order to keep the situation under control.

To show that Macedonia has won the 1st round against the virus, roughly 40-50 people get tested daily, out of which 7-17 are tested positive. In the mind of Venko Filipche this is a great way to show reduction in the number of cases in the country – simply test a lot less people.
