So far nine people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Macedonia. On Wednesday 12 new people were tested, two of whom were tested positive and others were awaiting results. The measures adopted by the government are being implemented. Students and the chronically ill do not go to school and work. Health workers must not use vacation leaves. Those spreading coronavirus fake news will be punished. The WHO declared Wednesday the coronavirus outbreak to be a pandemic.

The latest positive cases from Wednesday are patients from Debar, who are the neighbors of three previously hospitalized people from Debar infected with the virus. The seven patients with coronavirus have relatively mild symptoms.
