193 new cases and nine deaths were recorded yesterday. Hospital facilities are overcrowded and medical staff is exhausted. The makeshift hospital where three patients have already been admitted has been activated, and the three largest private clinics in the country – “Sistina”, “Remedika” and “Zan Mitrev” joined in fight of treating Covid-19 patients.
It is expected that in the next seven days the number of hospitalized patients will be higher than the number of discharged patients, after which the number of admitted patients is expected to decrease.
