Opposition parties in Kosovo are accusing the government of mishandling the pandemic.

In an extraordinary plenary session held over the current epidemiological situation in the country, opposition MPs berated the latest pandemic-preventative measures.

Prime Minister Albin Kurti argued that the new measures enforced are not “extreme”.

“The COVID-19 measures we’ve taken did not fall from the sky, but they came as a result of an intense and careful interinstitutional collaboration, including recommendations from health experts and representatives of other important relevant bodies”, Kurti said.

According to Kurti, it is “impossible to dodge rising cases”, but the aim is to slow down the upward shifting curve.

Former health minister Armend Zemaj accused the government of being “incapable of managing the pandemic”.

“We almost had 30,000 COVID-19 cases thus month. This is the outcome of the online pandemic management and of a crippled government issuing inadequate measures. The government has neglected the massive testing and vaccination strategy”, said Zemaj.

The leader of the Democratic Party of Kosovo Memli Krasniqi raised the alarm and accused the government of not paying enough attention to the aggravated situation.

“This government made two basic mistakes in its handling of the pandemic; either hesitating to read the situation so it can ignore it, or it is reading the situation entirely wrong”, he said.

On Wednesday, Kosovo recorded 4,397 new coronavirus cases.
