The Expres news site reports that patients in the Prilep hospital were warned by nurses that this evening there could be a lack of oxygen for the Covid-19 patients.

This lack of oxygen bottles, which are necessary to treat Covid-19, already happened in the Stip hospital, reportedly leading to deaths of patients. The Prilep hospital manager today lashed out at the crew of Alfa TV, one of the rare media outlets willing to ask difficult questions from Government officials, as they were questioning the appalling state of this hospital.

The reports come on the day when photographs from the Bitola hospital showed patients receiving IV treatment in the same room where two bodies of deceased Covid-19 patients were still kept.
