Microbiologist Nikola Panovski called on the Government to impose restrictions on the border to prevent the spread of the new omicron strain of the coronavirus. Panovski pointed to how Greece imposed virus tests on the border and sys that Macedonia must do the same.

If you ask me, I would introduce a PCR tests for all visitors right away. Let’s start with 15 days and analyze the results. We still won’t escape the virus, if it is really spreading so quickly, Panovski said.

Panovski also repeated his call for an earlier school break, to prevent the spread of the omicron virus through schools.
