Curfew after 9 pm will not change anything because it is quite empty then. Catering facilities are not working and gatherings in public spaces is banned, the Minister of Health Venko Filipce said at a press conference on Friday.

Home gatherings, as he said, remain a certain risk, although there is a recommendation that there should not be home gatherings.

That is why, a huge part of the effectiveness of the measures is up to the awareness of the citizens that the measures must be respected, said Filipce.

He reiterated that the measures were yielding results and that no additional measures were considered at the moment.
