Tragedy struck the Gergev family in Kavadarci, which lost two young sons to Covid-19. The brothers, Goran (21) and Marjan (26) died within days of one another.

Both suffered from aplastic anemia and were considered high risk. Marjan and Goran developed symptoms in two consecutive days. Both were admitted to the Kavadarci hospital and sent for treatment to Skopje, where both died. They are among the youngest victims of the epidemic in Macedonia.

The family already suffered the death of their mother who died at 40, leaving her husband with three sons.
