Zoran Zaev

The government of Northern Macedonia has decided to introduce new restrictive measures to prevent the spread of the new Delta variant of coronavirus and to reduce the pressure on hospitals. Their introduction on August 16 is important for the start of the school year on September 1 and for the successful census and local elections, Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said today, Tanjug and BTA reported.

Catering establishments have been given 8 days to reorganize, as there is currently a period of weddings and other events.

After August 15, restaurants, concerts, cultural events will be open only to citizens who have a certificate that they have received at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine. It will not be possible to organize celebrations indoors.

Zaev called on citizens to be vaccinated because this is the only way for the country to fight the KOVID-19 pandemic. He said curfew would not be introduced.

Vecher newspaper notes that the news of the new restrictive measures was met with violent reactions on social networks.

“The government has banned 77.6 per cent of Macedonia’s total population from entering sites. 22.4 per cent have been vaccinated so far. So 10 out of 10 people are banned from shopping, celebrating, attending seminars and trainings,” he wrote in Facebook MP Mile Lefkov from VMRO-DPMNE.

According to VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristian Mickoski, the government’s measures are “pseudo-measures that will not only not protect the health of citizens, but will further lead to division among the people.”
